    Where is your SSCCE? It's pretty hard to debug if we can't see any code.

    Is there a class file?

    An example of error message when there is not a class file:
    Microsoft Windows [Version 6.1.7601]
    Copyright (c) 2009 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

    D:\JavaDevelopment\Testing\ForumQuestions9>java NoClassFile
    Error: Could not find or load main class NoClassFile

    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    Why ">" ? And do you have the txt-file saved on your desktop or in a folder?

    YOu may also have forgotten to make the mainclass the mainclass...

    that was my mistake at first.

    Did you use the public static void main(String[] args) {} method somewhere?

    PS: I agree with KevinWorkman... Iīd like to see some code.
    One day I got the chance to speak to a hacker.. of course, I asked him to tell me where to start. i asked him what to do and even requested homework...

    He said: "Hehe, you have to work hard on your own little girl.. donīt change your dreams, change the world.."

    ... and thatīs what Iīm going to do. If he is somewhere out there and reads this someday, I thank him for encouraging me. His words have boosted my will to fight!
