You can check and modify the system environment variables through the control panel. Go to Control Panel -> System and Security -> System, and select Advance System Settings. Next click the Environment Variables button, and you cna modify the existing settings. Note: theses instructions are for Windows 10, so the actual route may be slightly different on 8.1, but the basics are the same.
It's a "Signature" - if you go to your profile (hover your mouse over your name at the top right of the page and select "My Settings") then select the "Forums and QA" tab you can set one near the bottom. That text will then appear at the end of each forum message you post.
I used Java, C, C++, Smalltalk, Algol and various assemblers in my professional life. The reason for choosing a specific language varied depending on what other people were using and what interfaces I was working with. Like I said before you make a choice based on your own specific needs or preferences.
I've tested other popular languages by writing a simple number guessing game. I hope to do the sam in Java.
The main thing I have against Java is that it does not compile into an EXE type program but instead it has the .CLASS extension so I need to type Java and the name of program.class to run my program. This make C# more attractive to me. However I'm going to see if there are programs that can convert a .CLASS Java program into an .EXE file.
I do like the way the main Java program can call other .CLASS files when needed and access variables without any problems.
But is Java good for writing Window desktop programs which seem to dominate the market?
The problem I have is in finding a way to double click on a Java compiled program when using Windows 8.1 operating system.
