If you have error, somewhat like this (Prompter class can be different for you):

ERROR: ';' expected                                                 
    load Prompter.java;                                             
                 ^                                                  
ERROR: not a statement                                              
    load Prompter.java;                                             
                  ^                                                 

ERROR: ';' expected                                                 
    load Prompter.java;                                             
        ^                                                           
ERROR: not a statement                                              
    load Prompter.java;                                             
                 ^                                                  

Then you probably typed load without semi-colon. Make sure you type it:

:load Prompter.java

If however you cannot compile file using the javac:

javac Prompter.java

Then always do that first, to see if there are any errors, before going to REPL.

And if you have errors upon compilation, then post your code here
