Listing 1 . A text version of Hello World.
class TextHelloWorld{ public static void main(String[]args){ System.out.println("Text Hello World");}//end main }//end class

As mentioned above, this program does not require the use of Ericson's library. It can be compiled and executed using a batch file containing thecommands shown in Figure 5 . You should make certain that you can compile and execute this program before progressing to the graphicversion.

Note that this batch file must be placed in the same folder that contains the file named TextHelloWorld.java , and that folder must be your "current directory."

Also note that the term "-cp . " (note the space followed by a period) is probablysuperfluous on most computers. According to PATH and CLASSPATH , "The default value of the classpath is "." (note the period), meaning that ..."

Therefore, it should not be necessary to specify the classpath as "-cp . " to compile and execute the program on mostcomputers. However, on 09/10/14, I encountered a student's computer that did notcomply with the default described above and this prevented the student from being able to compile and execute the program. Including "-cp . " in the javac and java commands doesn't cause any harm. Therefore, I have updated the batch file commands shown in Figure 5 to include it. You can omit it if your computer doesn't need it.

Figure 5 . Batch file for text version of Hello World.
echo off del *.classjavac -cp . TextHelloWorld.java java -cp . TextHelloWorldpause

A graphic version of Hello World

Listing 2 contains the code for a graphic version of Hello World.

Listing 2 . A graphic version of Hello World.
import java.awt.Color; class GraphicHelloWorld{public static void main(String[] args){Picture pix = new Picture(200,100); pix.setAllPixelsToAColor(Color.RED);pix.addMessage("Graphic Hello World",15,50); pix.show();}// end main }//end class

The program shown in Listing 2 causes the image shown in Figure 6 to be displayed when the program is compiled andexecuted.

Figure 6 - Hello World in graphics.

As mentioned above, this program does require the use of Ericson's library. It can be compiled and executed using a batch file containing thecommands shown in Figure 7 . You should make certain that you can compile and execute this program before progressing to morecomplex programs involving Ericson's library.

Note that this batch file must be placed in the same folder that contains the file named GraphicHelloWorld.java , and that folder must be your "current directory."

Figure 7 . Batch file for graphic version of Hello World. .
echo off del *.classjavac -cp .;M:\bookClasses GraphicHelloWorld.java java -cp .;M:\bookClasses GraphicHelloWorldpause

Once again, the commands shown in Figure 7 assume that the bookClasses folder is in the root directory on the M-drive. The bookClasses folder will likely be in a different location on your computer.

Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
