How to set up the classpath in jar manifest

You must break after exactly 70 characters. Otherwise the next line is not going to be treated as a continuation from the previous. There should be a leading space in all the wrapped lines, with a leading space for every line different from that with “Class-path:”. And don’t forget a new line at the end of everything! Here is an example of the manifest.
