# test to see if jikes is operable. i'm a crappy bash scripter
# so if someone knows a more elegant way to do this, let me know.

+echo $APPDIR/jikes
"$APPDIR/jikes" -version 1> /dev/null 2> /dev/null

then

cd "$APPDIR" && java processing.app.Base

3.2 Link java subdir to FreeBSD Diablo JRE-1.5 :
% mv java java.orig
% ln -s /usr/local/diablo-jre1.5.0/ java

3.3 Link jikes to FreeBSD jikes :
% mv jikes jikes.orig

4. Running :
You can launch Processing script now
./processing

PS : most examples have been tested and run well ; my box don't have a
3D video board, so i can't test OpenGL i don't use ; i will try sound,
serial/usb io (very important ..) and some other things as soon as i get
time ..

Enjoy !
