To all

Here's a somewhat annotated list of resources I've found useful or
appealing or promising for a newbie to Java :-). I think I'm willing to
maintain it, for a while, at least, so please submit other items to me
privately. I'll put in anything y'all find useful. Please include a bit of
annotation, if possible or necessary. And feel free to submit additional
comments on the items already listed.

Let me recommend that you get a PostScript reader. Some of the best stuff
is in PS format. There's a free one called GhostView that uses GhostScript
(also free) to process the PS file. The Ghostscript home page is at

The other thing to get is Acrobat Reader, for .PDF files. The latest
version is 3.01, available at (or start at )
