Totally new to Java and POSIX - hopefully this is an easy one…
I have fought my way to page 25 of the paperback edition where I had to run the start_minecraft batch file. It didn’t work, telling me there was a syntax error. I have scrutinised my command but I can see no difference between it and the command printed in the book.
As you can see from the listing from POSIX below (renamed sh.exe) I am in the server folder, the server folder has a file called start_minecraft.bat in it and (as far as I can tell) there are no typos. If I use ./start_minecraft.bat I get a ‘not found’ error.
Please help, it’s taken two days to get this far and I think my son is losing interest.
