untar for DOS/Windows?

Post by David M » Thu, 25 May 1995 04:00:00



Hello,
        I have a tared archive on my local machine. I could send it back
to my unix host for uncompression, but since its kinda large, I rather
uncompress it locally. I run DOS/Windows. Is there a ftp site for
a utility that will uncompress tar files?

The right newsgroup for your question is comp.binaries.ibm.ps.wanted
or comp.os.msdos.apps.

1. Help: Utility to Untar onto a DOS based machine?

Greetings,

I know of a utility to allow the 'Untar' of files from a floppy
written to in Ultrix, but to untar it to a DOS PC. My question
is what is the name of the utility and does anybody have the
file name and possible FTP location of it. Thanks for any help you
can provide. I think it's something like 'ptar' but that's not it.

Response via e-mail would be greatly appreciated as I don't frequent
this group much.

cheers,
marc
