Before installing your distribution you need to unpack it.
All z/OpenSource languages and tools are delivered as gzip tar files (e.g. automake-1.10_b0001.160204.tar.gz) with the exception of gzip which is delivered as a simple tar file (e.g. gzip-1.6-edc_b0002.160204.tar).
If you do not already have gzip on your system you will need to start by downloading and installing gzip and to unpack the gzip distribution you need only issue a standard tar extraction command.
To unpack all other z/OpenSource languages and tools from Rocket enter the following commands using your own
destination directory in place of /rsusr/rocket:
tar -C /rsusr/rocket -xoUXf tool.tar
For example, if unpacking automake-1.10_b0001.160204.tar.gz, issue the commands:
tar -C /rsusr/rocket -xoUXf automake-1.10_b0001.160204.tar
Each Rocket open source distribution comes with tool-specific installation instructions (README.ZOS) and a version information file (VERSION.ZOS).
