On 7 Jul 99, somebody had questions about Installation of Samba on 
SVR3 unix:

If you can uncompress the package without untarring it, at that 
point it's just text.  Then you can process it yourself with awk or 
perl (depending on your philosphy/experience).

I think one of my work buddys wrote a tar/tape package for DOS that 
re-named files/dirs to DOS 8.3 names (way back in the dark ages).  
The original poster should mail me directly if I should inquire 
about it (this guy never throws away useful code).
