working on:  (ECJ HowTo Part 1)

After you've done that, go to Run  > Open Run Dialog...

Click on Java Application on the left, and click the "new" icon. Give  
it a name, make sure the project is set correctly, and set the Main  
class to ec.Evolve.

Under Arguments, set the Program arguments to

-file (relative or absolute path to params file in the ECJ 16 source  

If you use a relative path, it must be relative to your project's  
directory. So in my case, my project directory is at /Users/ek/ECJ  
Tutorial Videos/ECJ 16, and the ECJ code is at /Users/ek/ECJ Tutorial  
Videos/Code. So your relative path would then be, for example,


I hope that helps!
