+There are just two classes in Fogbow.
* fogbow.example.WordCount - word count in Java (from the
standard Hadoop distribution)
* Version 1.6 of the Java 2 SDK (http://java.sun.com)
* Version 0.20.2 of Hadoop: http://hadoop.apache.org/common/releases.html
Configuring your environment variables
Next, add the directory FOGBOW_DIR/bin to your path. For example, you
can set the path in your .bashrc file as follows:
Once you have taken care of these three things, you should be able to
build and use the Fogbow Library.
