	Once you've got the file uncompressed, you still have to untar it.
For that, you might want to try a program called asphalt which is supposed to
be a tar implementation which runs on VMS.  Not having any VMS systems, I've
never tested it myself.  You can ftp it from goober.phri.nyu.edu.  Look in
the pub/vms directory.
