Unpacking these archives on the 3b1.

Unix PC Archive Holdings

These files come from some of the archives of 3b1/7300 software including the ones at Ohio State and UUNET.

Most of these files are in gzip format and many are in tar format. Since the Unix PC Foundation Set doesn't include gzip or tar, you may retrieve binaries of them here:

  • gzip

    You'll want to create two links to the executable file, one called gzip and the other called gunzip. Use the former to compress files and the latter to uncompress them.

  • tar

    This is not the GNU version of tar, so you can't use the z option to uncompress and unarchive at once.
