java coding

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

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.
