Along those lines (and I can't believe I'm asking this) but does anyone out
there know where there is an online reference for the .bat file syntax? I
tried " --help" and "info .bat" and they just didn't get me
anywhere :-]

Better yet, has anyone seen a more portable way of launching java programs
on all platforms? Clould we tweak the Ant ClassLoader to do the .jar file
searching after startup, so that "java -jar ant.jar" really does work? What
do the MacOS people out there do?

There's got to be a better way! :-)
