Downloading & Uploading an LZW Package File

With most browsers, you can do a click to fetch the file. Some may require a shift-click to fetch the file instead of displaying it.

Once you have the file downloaded to the computer your browser is running on, you need to upload it to the HP3000. The upload of "LZW" package files must be in binary.

LZW packages files can be uploaded to an HP3000 as either fixed-record binary or variable-record binary files, unless you have an old version of the LZW program.
(The old version, prior to A.03.24, required that the uploaded LZW package have a filecode of 665 and fixed-record binary records of 512 bytes.)

The following assumes you are trying to upload the file "PSCREEN.LZW" to a new HP3000 file named PSCREEN in the group UPLOADS (e.g., PSCREEN.UPLOADS in your logon account).

If you are using FTP to an HP3000, try a "put" command like:

   put PSCREEN.LZW PSCREEN.UPLOADS;CODE=665;REC=256,1,F,BINARY

If you are uploading with Reflection to an HP3000, try a "send" command like:

   (On the HP3000)

      :FILE FOO=PSCREEN.UPLOADS;CODE=665;REC=256,1,F,BINARY

   (On the PC)

      (press <ALT>Y ... this opens a Reflection command window)

      send PSCREEN.LZW to *FOO BINARY REC=512

To view the files in an LZW package (e.g., PSCREEN.UPLOADS), try:
   run lzw.pub.telamon;info="-f PSCREEN.UPLOADS -v"

To extract the files in an LZW package (e.g., PSCREEN.UPLOADS), try:

   run lzw.pub.telamon;info="-f PSCREEN -r -b -c"
