Yes, I'm running a Windows 2000 Professional box. The output file has no
blank line at the beginning, but the error occurred.

Is there any way to make it work under Windows?

This nearly always happens if you have a blank line at the beginning of
your file (the files must be *exactly* as written out).  One other
possibility is that this is a problem being caused by Windows -- the
example works fine under Linux and MacOS X, where I tested it, but I
don't have a Windows box to test under.

I know the following works fine on MacOS X:  use the Finisher code I
provided and try:

cd app/regression/
java ec.Evolve -file noerc.params

This will write out the file "example.log".  Then you can load that
file as:

java ec.Evolve -file noerc.params -p pop.subpop.0.file=example.log
