You are better off obviously doing it on an HP-UX box.

Depending on filesize, I'd be happy to do that for you. sprotter@investmenttool.com

Do not email it. Once I find the size, I'll let you know to go email or set up an ftp login for you.

If you want to throw the dice, your only hope is probably winzip.

Why don't you ftp the file to your hpux system and run

$ sh file

You could try and extract it with the windbloze zip .... I have feeling it's not going to work ...
Anyone for a Mutiny ?

I don't think it is possible to unshar a file in windows. I doubt that winzip would know what to do with it.

If you've got the nickel.shar file, you've apparently got an HP-UX machine to you want to install it on, so just FTP it to the unix box, do an 'sh nickel.shar' and then install it.

No trouble at all Munawwar,

I'm Central Time US and depending on my work schedule turnaroudn could be up to 24 hours on your message. Usually shorter.

If you mail, please remember to let me know the size of the file.
