Re: Install Error

Kevin -- was a total shot in the dark, since i figured javac ignored such things...but not running on Linux, and having been burned creating scripts on DOS machines that cause KSH/BASH to throw a hissy-fit, it's always something i try...

Good suggestion, Tom. I tried a "dos2unix" on all of the directories and subdirs but had no change of behavior with the ant build.

Given the location (end of line) of the error, is it possible that Kevin is building on a Linux/Unix system and that this file has a DOS-like ending?

Although the error shows:

my first several lines from ViewManager.java are:

Hello,

I had to recompile my idv and came across the same errors that I reported back in May. Specifically, many lines similar to the following:

Hi Kevin,
It looks like somehow the source code in that file got corrupted. From the src jar on the ftp site we have:

harpo.unidata.ucar.edu: more ViewDescriptor.java

Why don't you try and download it and build again?

-Jeff
