`items'  for  download

Material available for download is divided into `items', tabulated below. Each major item is a single compressed archive to be downloaded by the visitor.  For linux systems, each archive is a  .tgz  file.  For dos/windows systems,  each archive is a  .zip  file.

Before downloading any other items, please take a few minutes to download and expand the appropriate version (linux or dos) of the item  how2xpnd .  This is a 4-step procedure  :

1.  Choose your OS : gnu / linux   or dos / windows

2.  Expand the archive you just obtained in 1 :

     For linux, you downloaded the archive  1how2lnx.tgz .
    To expand it,  do the following :   $ gzip  -cd  1how2lnx.tgz  |  tar  xf  -
    This yields the desired local directory,  ./how2xpnd.lnx

     or  [ If your OS is dos or windows, you downloaded the archive 1how2dos.zip .
             To expand it, do the following at the dos-prompt :
             > pkunzip  -d  1how2dos.zip
             This yields the desired local directory,  .\how2xpnd.dos  ]

3.  Familiarise yourself with the contents of the local directory how2xpnd.xxx .  It contains information which enables you to easily acquire, expand, and install/use all other items.  It also provides means for checking each downloaded archive against contamination, before you accept it.

4.  Read the item checkvalues.

You are now ready to obtain any item in the following table, by clicking its link below :
