Uncompress a Z archive

The stock A/UX install doesn't include gzip/gunzip and tar will not extract Z files. A number of the A/UX files online such as via jagubox mirror will be in .gz format, so here is how you would extract the gzip archive (http://polysoft.fr/jagubox/Utilities/gzip-124.bin.tar.Z) using zcat and tar:

# zcat gzip-124.bin.tar.Z | tar -xvf -
x gunzip, 52780 bytes, 104 tape blocks
x gunzip.1.Z, 8187 bytes, 16 tape blocks
x gzexe, 3858 bytes, 8 tape blocks
x gzexe.1.Z, 1050 bytes, 3 tape blocks
