Here's the jython.bat file created by the installer.
 suffice it to say that it doesn't do what I expected.

Running in a persistent DOS window I see/hear the disk hits/light blinks and I get nothing.
If I enter the command: java
I get java
if I enter javaw or javaw -jar jython.jar, I get nothing.
 
I tried changing the org.python (see above) to org.jython but to no avail.
Ditto for a about an hours worth of fiddling with env variables, paths etc.
 
I have other Java apps, including jpython, running so I'm at a loss for how to get this going. Any pointers on this and other details for installing and running under Win98SE will be appreciated.
 
Thanks
 
Mike
