8This file only discusses the installation of .tgz files.
9For more detailed information on the installation of RTEMS,
10refer to the Release Notes manual in the file
11/pub/rtems/releases/<release>/doc/c_or_ada/relnotes.tgz on

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