Probably a version issue. replaceAll() was added to the String class in version 1.4 of the JDK. What version are you running on Unix?

What are the versions of the JDKs that you are using? I would hazard a guess that the Windows version is an older one. .replaceAll() didn't exist until the advent of regular expressions in Java (Version 1.4, methinks)

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
