The jstock.cmd file
With this file the program JStock starts. I have made a jstock.cmd file with the following contents;
@echo off set path=[drive: java]\JAVA160\bin set BEGINLIBPATH=[drive: java]\JAVA160\bin [drive: jstock] cd [drive: jstock]\jstock java -Duser.home=[drive: jstock]\jstock -Xms64m -Xmx512m -jar jstock.jar 2>jstockbugs.txtI use 2 separate folders (directories), one for Java and one for JStock with the files created by this program. The references used in the cmd file;
should be replaced with real drive letters. Edit and save the file "jstock.cmd" from the distribution. This file is copied to the "jstock" folder (directory). Furthermore, different paths?, adjust according to your needs. Create a new program object. Specify the path and file name: "[drive: jstock]\jstock\jstock.cmd". In the tabpage Session check the boxes "OS/2 window", "Running as an icon" and "Close Window to end program". In the tabpage General you can enter the name "JStock". You find enclosed in the file a JStock OS/2 icon.
Parameters / options explained
