21Java 1.3 or later is required. Java 1.4.1 is recommended.

23<a href="http://www.blackdown.org/">Blackdown Java 1.4.1</a> or
24<a href="http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.1/download.html">Sun Java 1.4.1</a>
25is recommended for Linux.

27<a href="http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.1/download.html">Sun Java 1.4.1</a>

32Simply untar or unzip the binary distribution, cd into the j directory, and
33run the jar file:
34<pre>
35    $ tar xvfz j-0.17.0-binary.tar.gz
36    $ cd j-0.17.0
37    $ java -jar j.jar
38</pre>
39Or on Windows:
40<pre>
41    c:\&gt; unzip j-0.17.0-binary.zip
42    c:\&gt; cd j-0.17.0
43    c:\j-0.17.0&gt; java -jar j.jar
44</pre>
45You should be able to bring up j's help from within the editor by pressing F1.
46If this doesn't work right out of the box, you may need to create a
47<a href="preferences.html">preferences</a> file and add a line to it to tell j
48where the documentation is located:
49<pre>
50    docPath=C:\\j\\doc
51</pre>
52<code><a href="preferences.html#docPath">docPath</a></code> should point to
53the directory containing j's HTML documentation (including the file you're
54reading now). On Windows, you'll need to use double backslashes in your
55filenames, as shown.
