    Default Trouble compiling java files

    I'm trying to create an IRC bot using java SE and have run into a problem

    I was given this direction on a site:

    To compile our example IRC Bot, you will need to open a command prompt and navigate to the directory containing the code. Assuming you have Java correctly set up, you can then compile the Bot by issuing the following command: -

    javac -classpath pircbot.jar;. *.java

    It told me that "*.java" would compile my .txt (txt files titled .java) files into .class files.

    This is my first time using a command prompt OR Java, and this is probably a very basic problem.

    PircBot - Java IRC Bot Framework (Java IRC API for Bots)

    ^^ these are the directions I am following.... I really just want to move on, help?

    PircBot Video Tutorial on Vimeo

    ^^ about 12 mins into THIS video tutorial is where I got stuck, I have followed the directions diligently, and I am running windows 7.

    my control panel looks EXACTLY like this guy's until i get the error message after typing the above command.

    The Command Prompt says: javac: file not found: *.java

    I thought *.java was an action........
