***.gz is the gunzip file format..first u have to unzip it using gzip utility....which comes with HPUX

gzip -d ***.gz

it will show u the listing then u can get the ***.tar or ***.depot to install the product.....using
swinstall -s ***.depot

this is for HPUX

if u r using solaris....
pkgadd -d <pkgname> will do..

The gzip and gunzip utilities are common in virtually all *nix. The easiest syntaxt is:

#gunzip filename

Normally the files will be tar'ed before they are gziped and will have to be untar'ed using :

#tar xvf filename.tar

This method will leave the tarball in place after the files are untar'ed.

I am not sure if the previous poster intentionally used "u r " for sarcasm or if is just the way that they normally post. Reguardless, the person who asked the question obviously isn't a native english speaker and as such it would be helpful in the future if the poster would use complete words.
