so I'm trying to learn how to code with Java, and I'm making some progress, but I have something happening that is confusing me
twice now, with my tiny little "programs", I run javac at the command prompt on the file.java file I am trying to compile, and javac doesn't report any errors, but it doesn't create a file.class file like all the other "programs" I have created so far.
prior to this, i have pretty much had typos, which i track down with the help of the error messages that javac provides.
any ideas why javac would run without errors but not make a .class file?

Post your commands

javac would always report errors unless it creates the .class file in some other folder where you are not lookig for it?

Post exactly your commands

this guy repirted the case when javac failes silently when some third party class is missing, but I think he still didn't notice something, or did something incorrectly:

I never saw javac silently failing

yiou cna still try

javac -verbose MyFile.java

When i read your comment i looked closer and at

class name {

was different than when i ran

javac name2

I changed name after class to name2, and sure enough, name2.class showed up.
I had been changing name.class, expecting it to be name2.class.
Thank you for the help.
