Thanks for the suggestion, and for the URI. It looks like "-link" is not
exactly what I'm after, but in reading the document you referenced I found
my answer -- for those who might be interested, the "-noqualifier"
parameter solved my problem (specifically, I'm using "-noqualifier
java.lang" since this section of the Java API is so well-known).
Your help is greatly appreciated, and was what I needed to get the right
solution. Thanks again!
