Sub Tasks

Description
The "java" command line supports both "-classpath" and "-cp" options to set the class path.  Currently "javac" only supports the former; it would be convenient if it supported the latter as well.

                                    

Comments
EVALUATION

Reasonable, but must be done in a "dot" release.

###@###.### 2002-03-12

This option will be available in Tiger (1.5).

javac now recognizes -cp as a synonym for -classpath.
