Look away Now: Java questions (Debian/Perl)

Hi Folks

I'm going to use The State Machine Compiler (SMC to generate some Perl modules.

The docs say I need the "javac", "java" and "jar" executables.

My machine runs Debian stable 6.0.1. java is in the path. The question is:
What do I need to install to get javac and jar?



You need JDK (java development kit), not JRE (java runtime envirnment). Try `apt-get install default-jdk` or `apt-get install openjdk-6-jdk`

user-pic I try to write all code in Perl, but find I end up writing in bash, CSS, HTML, JS, and SQL, and doing database design, just to get anything done...
