How did you change the classpath? The recommended way is to invoke rune as
$ rune -cpa dir ...
$ rune -cpb dir ...
where "dir" is the root of a directory tree containing your MyClass.class
under the appropriate package path. (If the directory contains spaces or other
odd characters, be sure to put quotes around it.) The "..." is the remainder
of whatever your normal rune invocation would be, and would be empty for
interactive use. "-cpa" stands for "class path after" and appends the
directory to the class path, putting it last in the search order. "-cpb"
stands for "class path before", and prepends it. You can have multiple such
options in one rune invocation.
For example, if your MyClass.class is in the package foo.bar, and is located
on the file system at c:/x/y/foo/bar/MyClass.class, then you could say
$ rune -cpa "c:/x/y"
? def mycls := <unsafe:foo.bar.MyClass>
If MyClass.class is not in a package, i.e., is implicitly in the empty
package, and if it's located at c:/x/y/MyClass.class, then
$ rune -cpa "c:/x/y"
? def mycls := <unsafe:MyClass>
should indeed work, though I have little experience with package-less classes.
Be sure that MyClass is declared "public".
For more usage info on rune, say
$ rune --help
Especially useful is the option "-show" to see the command line that rune
would have executed, rather than executing it. Each command-line argument is
shown on a separate line, rather than using quotes. If you want to issue a
corresponding command to the Cygwin shell, you'll need the quotes. On my
$ rune -cpb "c:/x/y" -show
If you're still having problems, please send me everything I'd need to
reproduce this at my end. Thanks.
