      Description



      Name: wm38563 Date: 12/09/98


      I am developing a small Java image-processing
      application. I would prefer to keep the source
      files on our Sun NFS server. However it seems that
      when my Windows NT machine copies files to
      the NFS server, it converts the filenames to
      lower case (eg. ImageViewer.java becomes
      imageviewer.java). The javac compiler then
      refuses to compile the application.

      It would be very useful to have a switch i can
      give javac to allow it to 'turn a blind eye' to
      the incorrect filenames and make it handle
      filenames (although obviously not class names)
      case insensitively.

      Thanks.
