6UNCOMPRESSING .tgz FILES
7===========================
8Many of the files found in this directory and its subdirectories
9are gzip'ed, tar archive files.  These files have the ".tgz"
10extension.  They were compressed with gzip version 1.2.4. 
11
12Use a command sequence similar to the following to uncompress each
13file:
14
15   gzcat FILE.tgz | tar xvof -
16
17where FILE.tgz is the file to be installed.  This procedure will
18extract the files in the archive into the current directory.
19All of the .tgz files associated with this release RTEMS will
20place their contents in a subdirectory rtems-<release> in the current
21directory.
22
23If you are unsure of what is in an RTEMS archive file, then use
24the following command sequence to get a listing of the contents:
25
26   gzcat FILE.tgz | tar tvf -
27
28NOTES: 
29
30(1) The "-o" option to tar is included on the tar command line
31    so that the user extracting the tar archive will own the extracted
32    files.
33
34(2) gzcat is sometimes installed as zcat.  Be warned that on many
35    (most) UNIX machines, zcat is associated with compress (.Z files).
36
37(3) If you do not have gzip 1.2.4, it is available from numerous sites
38    including this one.  Other sites include ftp.gnu.org and ftp.cdrom.com.
39   
40(4) The GNU archive files included in this distribution are packaged
41    exactly like they are on official GNU ftp sites.  When extracting
42    GNU archives, they will not extract under a rtems-<version>
43    directory.  They will extract themselves under a directory which
44    is the name and version of the tool in question.  For example,
45    gcc-2.5.8.tgz will extract its contents into the subdirectory
46    gcc-2.5.8.
