D*± production via e+e- → D*±X was studied at CM energies near 34 GeV. The charged particles produced in the hemisphere opposite to that of the D* were used to investigate the fragmentation of charm jets. All spectra studied show a close similarity between the charm jet and the average jet obtained by summing over all quark flavours. The spectra of particles produced in the D* hemisphere were used to study separately first rank and higher rank fragmentation.
