Sorry Dani, At that time I was not at all in a mood to check the stuffit properly and Sorry to post a immediate reply immediately.

Yes , I have downloaded it and it was of great help to me.

Have a nice day and great time , I remain


The GNU Tar program provides the ability to create tar archives, as well as various ... to other programs such as gzip or compress, and will not create tar.gz archives.

Good Luck
