Hi All,
I have downloaded the Acme.JPM.Encoders.GifEncoder class from http://www.acme.com/java site. But the downloaded file is in .tar.gz format.
I am using Windows XP as my OS, Can anyone please tell me how to decompress a .tar file? Is it possible on windows or only possible in UNIX OS?
Or any one knows from where can I get a .zip version of the same package? I couldn�t find out one in their web site.

Seems to me that WinZip can handle .gz formatted archives. Which Zip utility do you have?

As this doesn't have anything to do with SCJP Certification, I'm going to move this to (for lack of a better place) Java in General (Beginner).

If you have a file myfile.tar.gz, you can rename it to myfile.tgz and let WinZip unpack it as Bill said. It's a two stage process, WinZip will find a tar file which again you unpack with WinZip.
