    DEFAULTS

           Save path information in archive
           Save long filenames
           Save/restore extended attributes
           Save/restore file date-time created and accessed in Win95 and OS/2
           Save timestamps in the UNIX format under UNIX-like operating systems
           Don't save drive and root in path information
           Display comment ANSI sequences with built-in display handler
           Prompt before overwriting output files
           Use method 1 compression
           Use binary mode
           Use ! as list file symbol
           The "ac" command is an abbreviation for "u -u2 -jb"
           The "cc" command is an abbreviation for "y -jb"
           The "dc" command is an abbreviation for "d -jb"
    
           Under Win32, arj uses OEM codepage by default.  The "-hy"  option  sets
           arj to use the ANSI codepage which is the Windows graphical environment
           default.  arj/Win32 self-extracting archives should be built using  the
           "-hy" option.
    
           To ensure compatibility with previous versions of arj, the "-2d" param-
           eter has to be specified when archiving under UNIX.
