setting the "Java classes" directory in Linux
I am trying to use the parport library with Netbeans 6.9 on Redhat Linux and I do not understand this expression:
(I quote the expression from the original installation page of the parport library):
Unzip the file parport-linux.zip. This will produce a hierarchy with a top level directory parport containing the class and source files (along with libparport.so, C source files, and example programs). This directory (parport) should go in your "Java classes" directory. In other words, it should go in a directory contained in your CLASSPATH.
my question is that:
does he mean the java classes directory of my project or he wants me to add it to the JRE or JDK (I am new to linux and get lost with this).
