Difference between Linux self-extracting file
I surf to the Sun download page to download the JRE.
Under the Linux Platform - J2SE(TM) Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 7 box, there is 2 links. One is Linux RPM in self-extracting file and one is Linux self-extracting file. Two of them is .bin file. Is .bin file like .exe file in Windows?
What is the difference between these two self-extracting file? Is the Linux self-extracting file (without the RPM), the one that we have to compile manually?
