 Winzip does recognize the tarfiles as compressed archives but balks when trying to 
open them.

Rename xyz.tar to xyz.tgz locally.

Hi!


 I have problems reading tar files when I download them from the zope web site.
 I am working on a NT2000 box.
 Winzip does recognize the tarfiles as compressed archives but balks when trying to 
open them.

My WinZip (V 7.0 SR1) *does* handle tar.gz files properly.
Use "Open Archive", File Type "All archives", select your archive file,
"Open".

WinZip should ask you whether you want to decompress that single file
contained in the archive and open it. Enough temporary disk space 
assumed, this should work well. You can extract any files you wish
afterwards from within the GUI.

I have problems reading tar files when I download them from the zope web
site.
I am working on a NT2000 box.
Winzip does recognize the tarfiles as compressed archives but balks when
trying to open them.

For some reason IE saves a *.tar.gz file as *.tar.tar. Just re-rename it to
*.tar.gz and Winzip will do the right stuf.
