Thanks. That's a good suggestion. I do not have access to another platform.
But, due to your prodding, I tried another Java SDK. I downloaded Java 2 SDK 1.
4.2 from java.sun.com. Using that version of Java, I was successfully able to
install from the jython_21.class file. So, to summarize, with the following
version of java:
$ java -version
java version "1.4.2"
gij (GNU libgcj) version 4.0.2 20050808 (prerelease) (Ubuntu 4.0.1-4ubuntu9)
Copyright (C) 2005 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
I cannot install from the Jython_21.class file.
But, with this version:
$ ~/a1/Java/j2sdk1.4.2_10/bin/java -version
java version "1.4.2_10"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.4.2_10-b03)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.4.2_10-b03, mixed mode)
I can successfully install it.
I believe this indicates that the problem is with the GNU version of java (gij
?) installed on my machine. So, I'll try to report the problem to that
It also means (I think) that the Jython_21.class file at SourceForge is fine.
But, I guess you already knew that.
Thanks again for help.
