  1. Java codes have the problem that they can ( as far as I can see) only be run from the directory they are in. Some programs I have to run from everywhere, such as "DayNo" which gives the number of [the |a |to]day on the Gregorian calendar ( today is # 734898), which makes sorting on date faster. For UNIX I would copy DayNo to somewhere in the $PATH and the simple command "DayNo" returns 734898, "DayNo 2012-02-01" would return 734900. The 'java' gives me a problem, even "java ~/bin/DayNo" flags an error and so does a similar in a UNIX script file. How can I make that I can call (and start of course) my program from anywhere in my users area? Thanks.
