I suspect the version of Java you are using is your problem. I am
using JDK 1.1 Beta 3 and it worked fine with the following exceptions:
1.) Several deprecation warnings.
2.) One of the generated java files (ASCII_CharStream.java) was
attempting to call the "void finalize()" method on arrays of
primitives which resulted in the following error:
"ASCII_CharStream.java:36: Can't access protected method finalize in
class java.lang.Object. byte is not a subclass of the current class
Once the invalid attempts to invoke "finalize()" were commented out it
