Subject: uncompressing compressed files on VMS
Date: 1992-03-24 16:21:00 GMT

Greetings, fellow VMS users,

The folks at Kitt Peak National Observatory have developed a VMS executable to
uncompress compressed UNIX files. You can get it via anonymous FTP from
TUCANA.TUC.NOAO.EDU. Log on in the usual manner.
- cd util
- binary
- get compress_vms.exe
- exit

You need to define the following VMS symbol:
UNCOMPRESS :== $[yourdirectory]COMPRESS_VMS.EXE UNCOMPRESS
- you need to specify the directory unless you write it into SYSEXE

The extension of the file to be uncompressed should be .ps_z

I do not know any more about the utility, but I have used it successfully.
