if you're using C/C++ have a look at 'man ftw' or 'man opendir' && 'man readdir'. if not, if google for 'directory traversal algorithms' you'll prolly find plenty of examples.

try typing this at the console. Back up your java files first!!

for file in `find . -name "*.java"`; do cat $file|sed '1 d' > $file.tmp; mv $file.tmp $file; done
Hope this works...
