      Description

      Both of these are valid and are equivalent in Java:

      1) public String[] getStuff() {
      2) public String getStuff()[] {

      QDox does not support the second approach, which prevents it from parsing many of the classes in the standard JDK.

      For example java.io.ByteArrayOutputStream.toByteArray():

      Parser.yyerror: com.thoughtworks.qdox.parser.ParseException: syntax
      error @[135,43] in UNKNOWN SOURCE
      com.thoughtworks.qdox.parser.ParseException: syntax error @[135,43] in
