Instructions for Downloading HTML Files

The HTML download consists of a single, complete "package" containing all HTML and graphic files for this manual (007-2489-001). This "package" is in a gzipped tar format. To open the package after downloading...

if using IRIX or Linux:

  1. % cd  <some_directory>
    % gunzip  007-2489-001.html.tgz
    % tar xvf  007-2489-001.html.tar
  2. This will create a 007-2489-001 subdirectory off the <some_directory> location specified above. You may then view the book using any web_browser as follows:
    % web_browser  <some_directory>/007-2489-001/index.html

if using Windows (note: an extraction utility program such as Winzip is needed):
  1. In Internet Explorer, right-click on the link, select "Save Target As...". Choose a folder (temporary or otherwise) to download the file to and set the filename to be <product>.tar.gz (example: "007-2489-001.tar.gz").

  2. After the download completes, start the Windows (file) Explorer, open the folder in which you downloaded the file to, and double-click the filename (example: "007-2489-001.tar.gz").

  3. Winzip (or your installed extraction utility program) should start. In Winzip, a prompt should appear: "...decompress to temp folder..." - click "Yes". Winzip will display a list of files that are included in the archive/package you downloaded. Click the "Extract" icon. In the resultant window, select a directory (folder) to extract the files into (C:\temp) and click "Extract". A new folder will be created in the chosen extract directory (folder). That new folder will be entitled "007-2489-001". Quit winzip.

  4. In the Windows (file) Explorer, open the newly-created folder ("007-2489-001") and double-click index.html.
