MKoop is on a distinguished road

The class designations was actually an error on my part because when I copy and pasted the code I didn't think the file name was capitalized. (but it is in reality).

I'm no expert and am still learning java. The ("counter" + counter*counter) after the println statement is in response to the following requirement:

"In the while loop, output the counter variable. Then output counter squared on the same line with a space in between the two values."

I tried to run even some very basic code:

/**
* This is the main method for this class
*
*
* @author XXXXXX
* @param args
*/

public class testcheck {
public static void main(String[] args) {
int one;
String name;
one = 25;
name = "Fred";
System.out.println("The integer is: " + one + "\n"
+ "The name is: " + name);
}
}

with the following:

Matthew-lastname-MacBook-Pro-2:~ Matt$ javac Documents/Professional/java/testcheck.java


Documents/Professional/java/testcheck.java:20: illegal character: \0

^
Documents/Professional/java/testcheck.java:20: illegal character: \0

^
Documents/Professional/java/testcheck.java:20: illegal character: \0

(This error repeats 100x)

--This compiled and ran with no errors in DOS

I know java is integrated, but is there anything at all I need to download that could be causing this? An update or package or anything?
