I am getting pretty sick of using notepad to write programs in Java. As I am learning more and more about the Java language my programs are getting larger and larger and as a result it is much more tedious to make and organized in Notepad.
I want something that has shortcuts to avoid typing the same this over and over again or using copy and paste, and that helps me organize my programs. I am not getting into extremly advanced programing, so I don't really need something with tons of extra features, I would prefer something extremely simply. I would also really like it to be free.
I tried to get Eclipse, but I had problems opening and running it. I don't think it works with Windows ME
(I am a glutton for punishment and frustration
, which is why I have it. Actually I am just to lazy and cheap to upgrade to XP
Yes... I have been using goggle and I have been searching through old threads, but I cannot find what I am looking for.
Please helps newbie out!
