I have decided to try and pass a bit of time and learn a computer language. I have decided on Java and a bit of VBA for excel.
I found a site for java http://www.thanassis.com/java/java%2...to%20java.html
but... I want to try the lessons out and figure it out myself. I downloaded the java 2 JRE from oracle but that just seems to be the usual java update. I tried using the console on chrome but when I enter anything I get "unexpected response....".
What do I need to download to write, compile and execute JAVA. The only programming I have ever done was BASIC (I was decent at that) many moons ago and a good stab at PASCAL but that is long gone from the brain now.
Any help appreciated.
(once I get started on JAVA I will tackle VBA)
