In Groovy somebody made a script 2.groovy, which the Groovy compiler
compiled to 2.class and the JVM then refused to verify. So I was
wondering about the naming rules. Sure, I know about the basic rules of
/;[... but why is 2 as name not allowed. The only possible reason I
could find was that 2 is no valid identifier in Java, but that seemed to
me to be a wrong rule, since the JLS sould not define the JVMS.
In that manner... tanks Remi for
but I don't see there why 2 is not allowed as class name... are am I blind?
