I used Unix between 1983 and 1993, but now it is a withered skill
that is not supported by any Unix operating system. I can download
the .gz files, but I can't open them with WinZip. Is this a version
problem, requiring a newer version of WinZip than 1998? Seems to me
that WinZip could open a tar file, but there are none left here to


   Why don't you throw away WinZip and use instead WinRar ? Much more
   powerful, better
   compression, fully compatible with ZIP, RAR, TAR, GZip, CAB, UUE, ARJ,
   BZ2, LZH,
   JAR, ACE, 7-ZIP, Z files... I am using it since years, and I am fully
   satisfied. Also the user
   interface is more friendly than that of WinZip.
