To use the Java bindings, you may need to add to your shell profile
e.g. ~/.profile or ~/.zshrc:
    export CLASSPATH="$HOMEBREW_PREFIX/opt/csound/libexec/csnd6.jar:."
and link the native shared library into your Java Extensions folder:
    mkdir -p ~/Library/Java/Extensions
    ln -s "$HOMEBREW_PREFIX/opt/csound/libexec/lib_jcsound6.jnilib" ~/Library/Java/Extensions
