Hi Crhis,

That fixed it.

However, running "Java jar BrailleBlaster.jar" gives the following:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: jar
Caused by: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: jar
        at java.net.URLClassLoader$1.run(URLClassLoader.java:202)
        at java.security.AccessController.doPrivileged(Native Method)

        at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClass(ClassLoader.java:247)
Alexs-iMac:dist AlexJ$ 

I'm not sure why this is occuring.
