I am in total agreement regarding books being sacred. The pride of my collection would be my 11th edition Encyclopedia Britannica, followed closely by my 1832ish complete collection of Shakespeare's works (unfortunately they are in extremely poor condition, but it was a great find in a used bookstore that was only concerned with turnover and sales).

I especially loved the note in the section on overview of sorting algorithms where you ask the math geeks not to curse you.
You are welcome. You can also read my blog at javax0.wordpress.com that may help you to decide if you like my style or not. If not, I do not take that personally, you cannot fit everyone's taste. My wife likes my style, that is important. In my home, we have more than thousands of books, some of them older than 100 years. You should never scrap a book. Books are sacred.
They were meant more as comments, and perhaps discussion points, than they were as questions.

I can see three questions in your post; each should be a thread of its own, to give you a chance to win the book.

I believe that is the default installation directory on Windows. In there you should find your jdk-10.0.1 installation.
As for the PATH environment variable, it's done automatically when you installed Java, so assuming it's installed, you should be able to use java/javac/jar from the command line in any directory.

OK - I had only downloaded the JRE. I went and downloaded the JDK. I have both but I understand the JDK includes the JRE. What next? How do I get to a place to run a java program?
I know how to use the command line in the dos window. Would that be the only way to execute a java program unless I have an IDE?
Also, what is the purpose of the JRE? I must be sounding like a head without brains here.
Thanks for the responses - every little bit helps.

Copied java file into this window, highlighted and pressed "code" button.
Then clicked "preview".
No change. no line numbers.
What am I doing wrong?
Particularly annoying as I know I have done it correctly in the past.

This statement is ridiculous considering that this is a Beginning Java forum. Do you tell everyone who asks question here to think for a moment what they need to do differently to make the code work? These forums are for asking questions or not?
If you want to help with tips or code, then that's great! Otherwise keep quiet and let others who are willing to help answer.
