how to unzip wget-latest.tar.gz

I download wget-latest.tar.gz from Index of /gnu/wget, however, it saved in my windows as wget-latest.tar.tar

After I ftp it to aix server,
#file wget-latest.tar.tar
wget-latest.tar.tar: data or International Language text

how to uzip it?

tar: 0511-169 A directory checksum error on media; 0 not equal to 72165.

two ways:

Code:
gunzip wget-latest.tar.gz
tar xf wget-latest.tar

or

Code:
gzcat wget-latest.tar.gz | tar xf -

edit: missed the tar.tar thing... try to download again.

I get that alot when I download source to compile. Just rename the .tar.tar to .tar.gz and it should then uncompress just fine.


Code:
mv wget-latest.tar.tar wget-latest.tar.gz
gzip -d wget-latest.tar.gz
tar -xf wget-latest.tar
