I was wondering if anyone could educate me what the exact bit structure

the time to pull them forward to the new libLAS 1.2 stuff, for example.
I understand the desire for native java LAS processing, but I still
don't understand what this desire would have to do with libLAS. Do
you wish to copy the API and behavior or libLAS in native Java, or do

read/write may already exist out there. I do remember seeing at least
one example, but it was only LAS 1.0, and I don't remember if it was
