Hi, I am confused about JAD's readme. Can someone please explain in more specific ways how we can use JAD to decompile java file?
Thanks.

JAD is really easy to use. You just type: jad File.class
File.class is any compiled java class file.
HTH,

Hi, do I have to do it in any particular path with the java file? And can I just invoke JAD on
c:\
?

You should probably stick the jad.exe file somewhere that's in your PATH. That way you can do it from any directory. Mine is in my JDK /bin directory where java & javac are.
