Subject Re: Old Gshell sample causing issues with setting Java Memory options
Date Mon, 10 Mar 2008 20:11:25 GMT
I use it every day to remind me how to set up debugging.  I will be  
extremely unhappy if it goes away.  I also think the server may not  
run well with a smaller heap.

can you edit your settings into this file instead of removing it?  I  
find that much more convenient than trying to remember a long command
