    Exclamation Unpacking Pack200

    I am relatively new here, so I'll make this quick.
    I haven't used Java much at all, other than VERY basic stuff, but I have knowledge of programming in C++ and pretty much every web language.
    I several java files, which, after scrutinization, revealed that they unpack files from the user's hard drive that have been packed using pack200.
    Could someone give me a small program or applet or whatever that can unpack the files and save them to ou harddrive without running them? Thanks.

    Not sure I understand. You say above that you have programs that will unpack pack200 files. Then you ask:
    give me a small program or applet or whatever that can unpack the files
    The first statement says you have it. The second asks for it? ???

    Or are the files that do the unpacking in the packed file? Sort of a chicken vs egg problem.

    pack200 comes with the java SDK which is a free download from the Sun site. Do a Google for its doc.

    Heh heh. Good point.
    The thing is, the java code that I have that does it is REALLY complex, and I don't think that I would be able to duplicate it, because

    If someone could make a simple applet/jar file that is able to unpack a file that has had pack200 acted on it and save the file on my hard drive, I would be much obliged. It would even work to show me how to do it, or to give me code to compile or whatever. Thanks.

    Do you have the Java SDK that Norm mentioned?

    No, I don't have the SDK, although I could easily get it. I've got eclipse classic. I guess that probably wouldn't support unpack200 since it comes with java 5 or whatever, huh?...

    My guess would be no, but if you can get your hands on the SDK then you should be good to go.
