I think you're looking for the command "tar cvf" to create files.... x is for extracting.

no, I am trying to extract

maybe a bad tar file or you ran out of disk space

no, space is fine.
same file got exyracted on cygwin fine.

see if you can extract it: it's a .gz

first you have to gunzip that...
then do tar xvf...

I get "cannot create"..I am logged in as root, so maybe something to do with write permissions...even though I can create beats me.

A generic shell script compiler. Shc takes a script, which is
specified on the command line and produces C source code. The
generated source code is then compiled and linked to produce a
stripped binary executable. Use with care.


Just do a "make"


Try: "make test"
or: "shc -v -f match" then "match.x sh"

Caveat emptor: see Copyright

The results look fine to me, but I havn't used this in anger, but
the author has used shc for his work widely over SunOS, Solaris and
Linux, and done some testing on Irix and HPUX.

We tested it on a few SMALL ksh scripts - big tasks should probably
be written in C in the first place (see _SC_ARG_MAX below)!

I noticed 2 things:

1) the link I sent you has ".tgz" as the link, but the actual downloaded file is ".gz"....yet you gunzipped "tgz", did you rename it?

2) once you gunzip the file, in my case, I do not get a "tar" extension, in your case I see a ".tar" at the end of the filename. Again, how is this different and why?

It's not a zip file, it's a gzip. You have to use the gunzip command, followed by the tar command.

If it were Linux you could just do a tar xfvz, but the z option doesn't exist Solaris, so you have to gunzip it first. You could do it all one one command using pipe, but I just did it in two separate commands.
