Additional Files and Information

See utils_file_formats.txt for some links to information on gzip, PostScript, PDF, tar, and shar utilities. See utils_code.html for additional references to files and instructions for retrieval of utilities for DOS, MAC, UNIX, and VMS systems, e.g., ghostscript, gzip, pgp (containing my PGP PUBLIC KEY BLOCK), unshar, uudecode, unix2dos, zip, etc. Note that gzip will expand .gz, .Z, and .zip files (not .zip archives).

private/ is a "blind" directory which cannot be viewed using `ls` or `dir`, although files can be downloaded via WWW if you know their names.

This directory belongs to my spouse and her business Creek House Patisserie.

This is my mirror homepage containing just their own html files,

This is a UNIX system, and all file names are case sensitive. Files that end in .gz (gzip), .zip (zip), or .exe (DOS) are in binary format. Therefore, before retrieving these files, be sure your browser is set to handle binary transfer.

Note that files that contain a .ps are PostScript files (after expanding as appropriate, which can result in an expansion by a factor of 10 for some files); these will require a PostScript viewer or printer. Portable Document Format files have a .pdf suffix and can be viewed with Adobe acroread or some PostScript viewers.

Unmanaged VPS
