can anyone help unlock the .tar files so i can try to assimilate them into the basic stamp. i have pasted the link to the website where the .tar files are. i am trying to view the code for the unicycle. thanks,·jim
page link is here.·the code is in a .tar file at the bottom of the page. if you could unlock and share here, that would be nice...
try winrar. It is available at http://www.rarlab.com/.

i have already downloaded 2 files to unzip and
they won't work.

The windows version of tar is available here:· http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/gtar.htm
It's a command line tool since it's originally a unix tool, but in general you want to execute:
gtar -xvf <filename>
From the link you gave, you will need to unzip it first to unicycle-01.a.tar.· There may be other uznip utilities on the net that will deal with it, but this one is free.
Hope this helps.

thanks but i would have to be walked thru this setup as there are way too many options. frankly, i don't even see where the .tar dnload is on this page. i'll keep trying though. thanks, jim

Here are the files.· They appear to be C language, I don't know how you will be able to use them with a BS2.
I downloaded the files on the site and was able to extract all of them without an error.
Did the extraction not work or was it the software?

And the last two files....
Yuo cannot use these on the BS2. I thought you just wanted to get the files.
