Could anybody please tell me how to open and read a jar file in linux? I am using RHEL5, and unable to open any jar file.
Is there any way through which I can open them and edit them as well. Or is it like we cannot open jar files in linux??
Rather than opening a new thread, I am re-opening an old one that has relevence with this query.
I need to open jar files, those are either having .jar extension , or not having .jar extension but need similar procudure to open them.
"java -jar <file-name>" is fine to open the abc.jar file, but what would have been done to hold the file page-by-page, as it scrolls down to the end in one go ??
But "java -jar <file-name" is not enough to open other jar files without .jar as extension. For example, say I need to see file /usr/bin/java, then :
[--/bin]# java -jar java
"Invalid or corrupt jarfile java" as error message.
Similar message comes for most of the similar jar files in various directories.
Could anybody please suggest me how to open such files, and how can I see them on a page basis ??
