classes you must do so from that containing directory.
You may or may not be need to alter the CLASSPATH environment variable. If you need to, you may or may not be able to. Here is one work around that uses batch/shell files for compiling and executing Java programs.
With either method:
You can make use of the zio classes in your Java code by placing this statement at the beginning
