Here is one link Google found:
http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/howto-u...iles-in-linux/

.bin = "self-extracting binary file"

Just set the executable flag and run the file......

Smile Help to install .bin files in terminal mod

I've downloaded Java from its site.

I opened it in terminal, the name of the file was in black colour and the name was: jre-6u11-linux-i586.bin

Then I did : chmod +x jre-6u11-linux-i586.bin

The color of the text changed into bin.
Now how to install java?

Just run the executable, i.e. ./jre-6u11-linux-i586.bin. You'll probably want to run it as root. I fail to see how you couldn't find these instructions yourself on the Java website..
