Try placing the SWT-Win32-3235.dll in your project folder. It has to be above 
the SRC, as well place this file in the folder that contains the compiled jar 
that you are attempting to create.

no, actually, I have a login on John's machine so as to be able to work on 
either or both windows and linux.  My base machine is windows.  So the one I'm 
using on linux is John's.

I copied swt.jar to my javafun directory with the fruit.java program.
I haven't tried john's suggestion of using the -classpath flag, however, since 
I had copied the .jar file to my own directory, I figured it was in my 
classpath by default.  It still doesn't compile.

Well, I'm assuming that you are refering to SWT-Win32-3235.dll?

Greetings all --
I am finishing reading the java-in-a-nutshell book and have as yet not done
much hacking.  Now I have a really silly question... I am looking over
Jamal's fruitbasket program, which is slick and elegant if you haven't taken
time to read it -- the whole program is under 200 lines and uses the swt
library for the GUI.  But I am having the most annoying time trying to
compile it.
The file itself compiles fine, but even though I have a copy of swt.jar to
link into it, the javac compiler keeps rejecting it.  I tried putting a
symbolic link to the class tree, which is on linux in John Boyer's account,
but it still tried compiling  everything as if all the class files were out
of date, and failed because I didn't have permissions in that directory.

Question: what do I do to suppress compilation of a library that is in my
classpath?  If I put swt.jar on the compiler's command line, I assume it
should use the class defs from there and not go around recompiling

Thanx in advance.
