I've found I actually had two problems.
The later one was while trying to get the sample to compile: --module-path will
not tolerate a trailing "\" on the path. It doesn't reject it, it just makes it
My original problem turned out to be the fact that --module-path in a parm file
requires "/", not "\", even on Windows. Again, not rejected, just doesn't work.
Thanks for your help.
