Thanks Jonas!

I used "javac" to compile a file and "jar" to put it in a jar and passed 
the jar to javapp via the "-classpath" switch and I'm now getting a set of 
files with the expected output. Thanks for the help!

I was thinking to use "javapp" to convert an Android "aapt" generated 
"R.java" file into a "resources.pas" file but its way too verbose... I 
think I'll just whip up a pas program to perform some simple string 
transforms on the R.java file.

THX - Jon
