Jgrasp installation on RedHat9

The Jgrasp java IDE installation instructions for Linux are confusing to me. All it say is:

Unzip the distribution file in the directory where you wish to install jGRASP. This will create a jgrasp directory containing all the files. You may want to add the "bin" subdirectory of this directory to your execution path or create a soft link to .../jgrasp/bin/jgrasp from a directory on the executable path.

I have been using this application on Windows for a Java programming class and like it. I am relatively new to linux but would like to try and spend more time outside of the windows world. I have tried all manner of command line arguments to run the program from a terminal and in gnome and it doesn't seem to work, even when I use absolute pathnames to the file.

Has anyone accomplished this already that can make a suggestion that will help me get this thing running? I have already installed the java SDK so I have the runtime environment and development tools in place.

Finally Figured It Out

After a couple days of trying things and reading my how-to book for Linux I created a launcher icon from the gnome desktop to the binary file and that seems to be working. I then got the encoding error message mentioned in a similar post but found an option in the Jgrasp compiler settings > global where I could set the encoding to ISO8859_1 and that seems to have it working happily.

Hello I am currently in the same predicament you once where however I am not sure what file to attach the launcher icon to. Also I had tried the file mentioned in the install instructions but to no avail because it did not launch. Could you possibly be of some help? Thank you.
