Subject Re: [FalconJx] progress update
Date Wed, 27 Mar 2013 17:50:33 GMT
Excellent.  I will try it out later today.  I have to quickly fix some
FalconJS stuff for my potential "customer", but once I get past that I will
see if FalconJX can generate the same code.

I am hopeful that if I run into more of the kinds of errors I am fixing in
FalconJS, that they will be easier to find and fix in FalconJX.
