There is no reason for "jigdo" to follow the Windows API and
it does not. You should not expect Windows to "open"
non-Windows files. (That said, some "jigdo" files are plain

The "jigdo" utility comes in Windows and Linux versions. The Windows
version comes with two instruction files -  a short "how-to" from
the "jigdo" author and an extensive one from Peter Salzman.
