Thanks.  Works fine.

True, but I noted that O'Reilly's version just added this snippet to 
remove any trailing / or \:

                    // The filename may contain a full path.  Cut to 
just the filename.
                    int slash = Math.max(filename.lastIndexOf('/'), 
                    if (slash > -1) {
                        filename = filename.substring(slash + 1);  // 
past last slash
