[speex-dev] Trying to Unpack the RC2 source code release

.tar.gz files are first archived up with the 'tar' program, then
compressed with the 'gzip' program (.gz extension); most browsers
are notorious for un-gzipping a .tar.gz file without renaming it.

Since you're using Windows, it is very likely that the .gz extension
is confusing your archiver because it expects it to be a .tar file
within a .gz file, when in fact it's just a .tar file with the
extension .tar.gz.

Thus, rename it to just .tar and see if it works.
Otherwise, WinRAR doesn't seem braindead about this kinda stuff.


> Neither of them open the files
> "speex-1.0rc2.tar.gz" or "refman.tar.gz".  What am I doing wrong?
