First or all, you've to install the
library (>= 1.1.1) if necessary.
Command line syntax (JDK1.1) :
Run the following shell (might need some tiny changes depending on your JVM install location) jpicedt.sh
(here again, this might need some changes depending on your JVM install location)
You'll need JBindery, a small utility that allows to generate a click-able application
from a JAR executable (it stems from the fact that MacOS has no command-line console.
The syntax of the command line is rather tricky ! It must (at least) contain a
-classpath somewhere, followed
by space(Unix)/comma(Window) separated references to:
- the Swing library (usually swingall.jar);
- the standard JDK classes (classes.zip)
Under Linux this might look like:
java -classpath .:jpicedt_N_M.jar:/usr/lib/java/lib/classes.zip:/usr/lib/swing11/swingall.jar picedt.Main
Win9x and some Unix JVM's allow you to run a javaw interpreter
instead of the usual java interpreter, the only difference being
that no console (i.e. unix-shell or DOS-box) gets displayed.
Finally, if you're a MacOS user, please note that Swing library is usually
included in the System folder (but MacOS X users don't need it anymore)
