If you mean to ask the command,

here it is..

Viewing the Contents of a JAR File

jar tf jar-file

and for getting any txt file , just grep it

jar tf jar-file | grep "yourfile.txt"

What u suggested - Jar command only give the table of contents, from this "grep" extract filename alone. But, I am asking what the content exactly present in file.

if there any command like cat to view the content of the file.
