mxj [quickie] not working — for a certain file

Jan 30 2010 | 9:21 pm


[quickie] works fine to open an existing .java file, called However, if I make a copy of that file, called, put it in the same folder, and try to use [quickie] to open the copy, I get a slew of recursion errors to the Max window, and then either nothing happens or Max crashes. The same problem happens whenever I try to create a new file from scratch, by giving [quickie] the name of a file that does not exist.

Following are the errors I get. Any ideas? Does this mean anything to anyone?

A year ago, someone named Danny seemed to have a similar problem:
While the error I’m getting is similar, I can’t apply any of the advice he got to what I’m doing. He was building in a separate IDE, and so there’s a lot of talk about moving various library files to his /Contents/java/lib folder. There’s no such folder for me, because I’m just using [quickie].

Any help will be very much appreciated,

Also, in case it’s relevant, (1) I recently installed Max for Live and XCode, and (2)
when I start [quickie] the following prints to the Max window:

/Applications/Max5/Cycling ’74/java/lib/jitter.jar
/Applications/Max5/Cycling ’74/java/lib/jode-1.1.2-pre-embedded.jar
/Applications/Max5/Cycling ’74/java/lib/max.jar
/Applications/Max5/Cycling ’74/java/classes/
Jitter 1.7.0 installed
Jitter Java support installed

I reinstalled. The problem seems to have gone away. Thanks for whatever help may have been forthcoming :)
