@c man title fastjar archive tool for Java archives
@c man begin DESCRIPTION fastjar
@code{fastjar} is an implementation of Sun's jar utility that comes with
the JDK, written entirely in C, and runs in a fraction of the time while
being feature compatible.
If any file is a directory then it is processed recursively. The
manifest file name and the archive file name needs to be specified in
the same order the @option{-m} and @option{-f} flags are specified.
@c man end
@ignore
@c man begin SYNOPSIS fastjar
fastjar @option{-ctxu} [@option{OPTIONS}] [@var{jar-file}] [@var{manifest-file}] [@option{-C} @var{dir}] @var{files}@dots{}
@c man end
@c man begin SEEALSO fastjar
gcj(1), gij(1), grepjar(1)
and the Info entry for @file{gcj}.
@c man end
@end ignore
@c man begin OPTIONS fastjar
Exactly one of the following actions must be specified:
@table @gcctabopt
@item -c
Create new archive.
@item -t
List table of contents for archive.
@item -x
Extract named (or all) files from archive.
@item -u
Update existing archive.
@end table
The following parameters are optional:
@table @gcctabopt
@item -@@
Read the names of the files to add to the archive from stdin. This
option is supported only in combination with @option{-c} or @option{-u}.
Non standard option added in the GCC version.
@item -C @var{directory}
Change to the @var{directory} and include the following file.
@item -E
Prevent fastjar from reading the content of a directory when specifying
one (and instead relying on the provided list of files to populate the
archive with regard to the directory entry). Non standard option added
in the GCC version.
@item -M
Do not create a manifest file for the entries.
@item -i
Generate an index of the packages in this jar and its Class-Path.
@item -J
All options starting with @option{-J} are ignored.
@item -0
Store only; use no ZIP compression.
@item -V
@itemx --version
Display version information.
@item -f @var{archive}
Specify archive file name.
@item -m @var{manifest}
Include manifest information from specified @var{manifest} file.
@item -v
Generate verbose output on standard output.
@end table
Parameters of the form @option{@@}@var{FILE} are considered to be names of files, and
are expanded with the contents of the file.
All remaining options are considered to be names of files.
