Hello, I'm new to this site. Just have a quick question hopefully someone can answer for me. I have a program created in java that I would love to share and get feedback on. It's an exe that i have saved inside of a dropbox file. Am I allowed to share the dropbox link for people to download and use it?

@Derek1 Why not just pop it into a Java repl? http://repl.it/languages/java

That way people don't have to download anything, and that way it's completely safe. Spreading unknown exes are dangerous!

@timmy_i_chen I would do that but it's just a lot of code to re create here. Is there a convenient way of uploading it? Also, I'm kind of self conscious about having people look at my source code.Not because it's malicious just because of self insecurities about how I've written my code,..

@Derek1 Unfortunately you can't share .exes here - it's a bit of a security risk and it goes against the entire idea of Repl.it. You know, developing, sharing, and running all online.

@timmy_i_chen I completely understand. Perhaps I will try and re create it here so people can have a look at it. Question when creating a new repl here, is there a way to get a file path if I wanted my program to create a text file or something.

timmy_i_chen (948)

@Derek1 Sure! You can always reference relative file paths - for example, if you had a file thing.txt inside of a folder called stuff, you can reference 'stuff/thing.txt' to reference it

@timmy_i_chen Sounds good thanks for the help @timmy_i_chen! And just to be clear sharing a .jar file is also prohibited as well?

timmy_i_chen (948)

@Derek1 Anything that requires a user to download anything is prohibited.
