For my programming class at college, I am required to write code in java in a text editor and then, utilizing the command prompt, compile and run that java file.
However, when I try to compile the java program using javac, I get "'javac' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file."
I realize that this is most likely a problem with the "path" environment variable. But when I tried adding ;C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_33\bin; to the end, command prompt still failed to recognize javac. I am using java version 6, update 33 because I am running a 32-bit system, and the newest version of java is only made for 64-bit systems.
I have tried everything I can think of, have googled relentlessly, and can't seem to figure out what I am doing wrong. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
