Testing SableCC for JDK 1.1


I need some help for testing and compiling a JDK 1.1 compatible version
of SableCC.  Here's some context.

Some SableCC potential users are still using JDK 1.1.  Since the move to
JDK 1.2 collections, this problem has surfaced many times, mostly in
private mail to me.

Now that I am using Jakarta-Ant to manage SableCC releases, it is very
simple to automatically modify SableCC's source code to use Sun's
collections package for JDK 1.1
So, I did this (it only took me a couple of minutes, thanks to Ant's
"replace" feature).  But, I do not have the JDK 1.1 installed on my
system, and, more importantly, I do not have the time to test, compile,
and write compile/install documentation (in the README.html) file.

If some of you is interested in helping, please let me know.  It would
surely be appreciated by the few JDK1.1 users left out there.  If you
are familiar with SourceForge, I can give you developer access to the
CVS repository.  If you are less familiar with it, I can take care of
merging your patches into SableCC.

You can find an experimental jdk1.1 version of SableCC (source package)
I have no idea if the Ant build tool works under jdk 1.1.  You might
have to manually compile the code (go to the "src" directory, and launch
"javac org/sablecc/sablecc/SableCC.java). 

Thanks in advance for your help.
