    What do the links have to do with your question?

    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.
