Yes it's Java.

I guess this is where you could call me trigger shy. I am by no means  
a compiler guru, I have created quite a bit with parsers and AS3 Doms,  
asblocks and such but really I guess it comes down to tests.

I know that tests are the MOST important aspect of a parser/lexer and  
compiler. This is why I was waiting to see if Gordon was going to be  
able to jump start the tests in the framework falcon folder.

I just wanted to see "HOW" he does it. Then I would work like a mad  
man filling all the gaps based off his pattern for testing. I really  
have no idea what is the correct way to test this huge framework that  
has been donated.

Just saying *do it* is not relevant to this initial endevor of getting  
tests going for Falcon.

I'm going to wait and see if Gordon has any response to this.
