       fastjar - archive tool for Java archives


       fastjar -ctxu [OPTIONS] [jar-file] [manifest-file] [-C dir] files...


       "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 -m and -f flags are specified.


       Exactly one of the following actions must be specified:

       -c  Create new archive.

       -t  List table of contents for archive.

       -x  Extract named (or all) files from archive.

       -u  Update existing archive.

       The following parameters are optional:

       -@  Read the names of the files to add to the archive from stdin.  This
           option is supported only in combination with -c or -u.  Non
           standard option added in the GCC version.

       -C directory
           Change to the directory and include the following file.

       -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.

       -M  Do not create a manifest file for the entries.

       -i  Generate an index of the packages in this jar and its Class-Path.

       -J  All options starting with -J are ignored.

       -0  Store only; use no ZIP compression.

           Display version information.

       -f archive
           Specify archive file name.

       -m manifest
           Include manifest information from specified manifest file.

       -v  Generate verbose output on standard output.

       Parameters of the form @option{@}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.
