    Question javac compiling output strange error message(s)


    At first everything worked great. And i decided to do a backup so i ran:

    -----------------------

    $ rm *.class

    $ tar zcvf backup.tar.gz ./*.java

    $ mv backup.tar.gz ../myBackupStuff

    ------------------------

    Later I've tried to continue developing and compiling my program:

    $ javac Menu.java

    and i get the strangest error. First hundreds of lines filled with crap just flashes by and my computer beeps several times:

    ΤΥե롦ۡڡ®ǽȤ ϰȯȡ"%"%&%!#!"/#/ΤΥե롦ۡڡ®ǽȤ ϰȯȡ"%&)/(=)-.,:?()=08#"%"ΤΥե롦ۡڡ®ǽȤ ϰȯȡ#%#"
    ... and more

    But the last thing i see is something like "100 errors".

    Any ideas on what's causing this?


    If it's necessary to see the source code I'll try finding some webspace..

    Have you made sure that the .java file you're trying to compile actually contains java sourcecode?

    It almost sounds like the file is crosslinked or something. Assuming that the code is fine, when viewed with an editor, I would copy it from that file and create a new copy by pasting the code into another file in a different directory. Probably won't do anything, but it sounds like some file got corrupted along the way.
