Un-archiving the glFusion Distribution
To un-archive a .gz file, you can use recent versions of WinRAR or 7-Zip. If you are running Mac OSX, please ensure you have the latest version of StuffIt installed as previous versions have had difficulty properly un-archiving .tar.gz files. For Linux/Unix users, use the standard
tar command to extract the .tar.gz distribution.
