I can't seem to get the 1.3 Jar command to recognize non-ASCII filenames - when I jar *, it does jar them up, but translates characters in the filenames to +' etc. The files are in UTF-8 and Jar supposedly supports UTF-8??

PS - how can the -i flag help me on this? according to the spec at http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.3/docs/guide/jar/jat.html it says that "The UTF-8 encoding is used to support non ASCII characters in file or package names in the index file" so I assume that non-ASCII filenames are supported...

Is it possible that your shell is translating these characters and screwing them up?

Try creating your JAR file from within Java, and see if that works.

Otherwise, you might just have to replace ths offending characters.
