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