It's probably not what you're looking for, but I decided to implement
a JNI interface to Meta-S. What I suppose this means is that Java
programs deployed on Windows and *nix systems will be able to parse
with the ANSI/ISO compliant C++ grammar that is included with the next
version. This may or may not suit your needs.

That having been said -- does anyone know of a C++ compiler that will
most closely emulate the issues that *nix systems will throw at my JNI
code if I include it in the distribution?
