JAR files are like ZIP files on steroids. They contain some extra features along
with their lossless data compression algorithm. Since they are an integral part of
JAVA, everyone with a JAVA Development Kit (JDK) or JAVA Runtime Enviroment (JRE) should
have a program that will uncompress/unarchive them. To expand logit1-12.jar, make sure
the computer is pathed to where ever the jar program is located (On Win95, it most
likely resides in jdk1.2\bin\jar.exe). Change to the directory containing logit1-12.jar
and type the following command:
jar xfv logit1-12.jar
x extract files
f route data to a file rather than standard out
v verbose mode
logit1-12.jar path/name of the file(s) to expand
Simplying executing the jar program without any parameters should provide additional
help on how to use the utility.
Note: Some JREs do not come with a JAR utility. In this case, try using a standard
zip/unzip utility to decompress the JAR files (such as pkunzip, etc.).
