Thanks Tom,

   Someone wrote right back and explained that
to me.  I assumed it was a Java app because the
directory "java" was in the path.  I never even
bothered to try "view source", thinking it might
have been protected (via php for example) if it
was a commercial product.  Nice job on the program!
