Re: File for building Java code for algorithms in the book
- Although you seemed to have missed some of the points in my orginal
message, you have answered my question - which is where the files I
need to import are located so that I can download them. When I said
the missing file did not exist, I meant that it did not exist on my
computer. Until you told me, I did not know that what I needed was in
the v 0.92 archive. It would have done no good to set the CLASSPATH to
look for a file in a place on my computer where I knew there was no
file to import. Until I downloaded and unzipped the archive there was
not even a path to the file.
The whole point of my trying to get the Java code was to have something
to help me understand the pseudocode, and hopefully to use my
understanding of this pseudocode example to figure out the pseudocode
later in the book. I think I probably have enough experience with Java
to follow the logic of the code will have the opportunity to step
through it with a debugger to help me understand it - and then use the
Java code to figure out the pseudocode. For the Python and Lisp code
to help, I would first have to learn Python or Lisp. I understand the
ALPHA-BETA-SEARCH algorithm, but from sources other than the
pseudocode; what I am struggling with is trying to understand the
authors' pseudocode style so I can understand algorithms later in the

to run every algorithm in that distribution. Nothing special about
the 0.92 archive. Once you download the archive and unzip the archive,
the files are on your computer (needless to say). Otherwise not
(needless to say). The demo files show usage of particular classes.
That said, if my message helped, that is good news.

Many thanks for the reference !
