structurepackage. What is this about?
In addition to downloading the
element package, you
should also download a copy of the
structure package as
well. This package provides a number of routines that support
input and output in a portable manner. You can get the
structure package from http://www.cs.williams.edu/~bailey/JavaStructures.
This package is also used in the CS2 course supported by the book Java
zip file should be left as it is, and not unzipped.
Java stores class files in
zip files to form packages.
When you set up your environment, you should include the
zip file in your CLASSPATH, or if you are using an
environment, such as Code Warrior, you should include the
zip file in the project.
importstatements to find the classes from the package. Why?
On systems where CLASSPATH must be set, remember to add
the zip file to the CLASSPATH directly. If absolutely necessary
the class files may be unzipped from the package and placed in a
element. The parent directory to the
element directory should be included in your CLASSPATH.
zip file formats are far more efficient because
fewer files must be opened during the import.
If you're using the CodeWarrior system from MetroWerks, you will find instructions for creating libraries (jar files) here.

First, if the window is very small, you may have an outdated version of the element package. There are problems on Windows machines using Sun's environment (javac). Pick a new distribution and try that out.
Otherwise, use the constructor for the console window that takes the size
as parameters. Here's the example usage:
public class test
public static void main(String args)
ConsoleWindow c = new ConsoleWindow(50,80,"Try this");
for (int i = 0; i < 50; i++)
