      Description

      Name: bsC130419 Date: 05/16/2001


      java version "1.3.0"
      Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.3.0-C)
      Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.3.0-C, mixed mode)

      If one creates a manifest file where the main class is followed by whitespace
      before the carriage return:

      Main-Class: test

      the jar file cannot be run using the syntax:
      java -jar test.jar

      This is a bug. It is very easy to accidentally include whitespace on a line,
      especially if the manifest is generated from a batch file:
      echo Main-Class: test > manifest.txt

      Thanks!
