This is a Gzip file, it's a form of compression. Generally, files are TAR'd then to compress
them a little more, Gzip'd. To un-gzip this file run this:

gunzip httpd-2.0.39.tar.gz 

this will give you the file httpd-2.0.39.tar and then you can just untar it and you're rockin
like Dokken

  Subject: What is significance of the .gz extention?

  I have downloaded httpd-2.0.39.tar.gz ; however, I do not understand the significance of
the .gz extention.  I have been off in OS/400 systems for several years, and the last time
that I was active with unix systems, we only used .tar.  In other words, how should I restore
this from the "tape archive (tar)" file.
