TestBed$Tester in unix solved!

Posted by hunter milligan on September 06, 2000 at 3:18 PM

Thanks for the idea.
Under Unix you have to escape the $ using the \ character.

$ java "TestBed$Tester"
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: main
bash:2.02 /ThinkingInJava/c08

$ java TestBed\$Tester

So, once the $ is escaped, it works fine and dandy.

Thanks again.

> I compiled and ran your code and it runs fine.It seems java is not finding .class file in current directory or classpath . Please check the location of your .class file and the directory from where you are running your program. If you are running on UNIX then may be due to the "$" sign in file name it is giving problem. Check on java on UNIX documentation how to specify the file name if it contains "$" . I guess you will have to put the filename in quotes or use some escape characters. I am running this program on windows.
