extract Processing folder/files....

extracting Processing files two files appear Processing and Processing-Java applications

do I extract both files or just one. if I extract both files do I have both files merge into one folder named: processing-3.3

Or do I extracted files from Processing application, and then run the file processing-java application ?

Is there a benefit from opening one 1st rather than the other?

thank you in advance for any help/info provided


  • When you download processing, you get a zip file. Extract the whole content of your zip file. You execute the Processing Development Environment (PDE) by executing the processing.exe file. This is the Processing editor - the GUI interface. The second file, processing-java.exe is to execute pde files from the command line in Windows or from a terminal in Linux/Mac OS. It is very unlikely you will need the second one btw.
