==== Description: ====
I have created a new programming language called Java Training Wheels
(J.T.W.).  The Java Training Wheels language is powered by a pre-processor
that adds features not found in the Java language.  As proof of concept for
J.T.W., a SUPERFOR macro is presented much like for loops in the BASIC
programming language.

Also as a second proof of concept, a file inclusion mechanism is presented
that behaves like the C Pre-Processor o that J.T.W. methods can be placed in
their own source files when these methods become large and unwieldy.

The J.T.W. language also introduces BEGIN and END constructs, which are
simpler for novices to learn than Java's { ... } constructs.  The { ... }
construct is more suitable to advanced programmers like Lisp's ( ... )
construct.  However novice programmers want all of the help
that the compiler can give them, which includes support for the BEGIN ... END

Also I have introduced new keywords: FUNCTION, METHOD, PROPERTY, CONSTRUCTOR,

==== Other Software Required: ====
(1) J.T.W. needs to have GNU Emacs, java, javac, bash, make, grep and sed on
the host system to build *.class files from *.jtw source files.

(2) The file texinfo.tex and the commands chmod, cp, gzip, m4, makeinfo, mv
and rm are required to build the texinfo documentation.
