Subject: Decompressing netlib .z flies on VMS.
Date: 1992-03-24 18:14:00 GMT

Any DECUS tape for the past several years, in the [VAX000.work] directory
has a set of programs beginning with LZxxx.

Both the executables and sources are there for two forms of the compress
and decompress program. I have successfully used the executables directly
off the tape to decompress all of the .z files I have copied from the
Netlib. (That includes ALL of the archives.)

There are two decompressers, like I said. lzdcmp.exe and lzdcm.exe. I
find that the lzdcm.exe works, it did for the Cat-2. The other one
errors out.

The sources involve about nine files, so I can't really offer to send them,
wish I could. Decus tapes are pretty easy to come by, especially old ones.
