Using javac - basic compiling


    Jul 13 2006 | 6:18 pm
    Hi,
    I'm just trying to to the basic HelloWorld1.java external. I've had a look at the tutorials, haven't used anything in 'configuring', but apart form that, all sees fine.
    However, I get the following error in the terminal:
    $ javac -classpath "/Library/Application Support/Cycling '74/java/lib/max.jar" HelloWorld1.java
    HelloWorld1.java:3: error while writing HelloWorld1: HelloWorld1.class (Permission denied)
    public class HelloWorld1 extends MaxObject {
    ^
    1 error
    [andrew@eccles:/Applications/MaxMSP 4.5/java-doc/tutorial/src] $ javac -classpath "/Library/Application Support/Cycling '74/java/lib/max.jar" HelloWorld1.java
    HelloWorld1.java:3: error while writing HelloWorld1: HelloWorld1.class (Permission denied)
    public class HelloWorld1 extends MaxObject {
    ^
    1 error
    [andrew@eccles:/Applications/MaxMSP 4.5/java-doc/tutorial/src] $
    ///////
    If anyone could help, that'd be great!

      Either this directory isn't writable, or there's a class file there
      which you don't have permission to overwrite...
