    Default Understanding CMD and Classes?

    Hey Members,

    In my Java class, my professor was teaching us about CMD prompts and how to find the directories of the files. Unfortunately, I have not been able to grasp the concept behind this idea. If I find to see if a particular file is there, can I not go to the file directly rather then having to use CMD (command). What is the purpose of CMD?

    Secondly, I took a c++ class and now I'm in my second course which is integration the materials from c++ in to java. We are learning about classes. I have not been able to understand what classes do for you...and I noticed that in c++ (visual studio) the main started like
    Java Code:
    int_tmain(...)
    but the topic we covered yesterday started like
    Java Code:
    public class helloworld
    {
    public class helloworld(String)
    {}
    }

    What is the purpose of CMD?
    If you are on a Windows OS, ask a search engine about DOS and its commands.
    understand what classes do for you.
    Ask the search engine about object oriented programming (OOP).
    If you don't understand my response, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    Why not ask the professor for further guidance I wonder :/ That's what the guy is paid for.
