    HP-UX .depot files are in fact glorified tar files. You could use Archive::Tar files if you really wanted to look inside them. I've got to ask though: why would you want to do this? -- those files are almost always useful only to HP-UX systems.

    Kids, you tried your hardest, and you failed miserably. The lesson is: Never try.
        In that case, if you've got access to an HP-UX box,
        swlist -l file -s $PWD/filename.depot
        is The Right Way.

[Eily]: and since his name is a modified version of astérisque (asterisk), which is a typographical symbol, I think it's even funnier that he would lose a diacritic
[Eily]: the pun doesn't work so well with "he lost a diacritic" though :P
[LanX]: Obelix might offer to find it again ...
[LanX]: not much to translate anyway since Goscinny died
[Eily]: https://en. wikipedia.org/ wiki/List_of_Aster ix_characters some of the names were changed to include a new pun
[LanX]: sure some are even funnier now
[LanX]: some lost because they were not translated like Epidemais
