These are macosx specific. I typically ignore these.
Looks to be generated by one of the java sources in the same directory.
> ./nbi/engine/native/cleaner/windows/vcproject/NBI Native Cleaner.ncb
Looks to be a file used by Visual Studio. I usually ignore these.
Looks to simply be some implementation of unzip. Source should be
modified to find unzip installed in the system.

Looks to be simply bogus netbeans modules for use with testing. They
don't contain java classes. You could probably ask upstream how they
This file simply contains a string of all characters in the ASCII

generate this. I wouldn't bother writing one.
Looks to be simply a heap dump from some Java program. Run any java
program and create a dump of your own.
A dump of some subversion repository. Create a repository of your own
and make a dump.

I heard of kword and scribus that can work with these files.
