in reply to Expanding HPUX .depot files on a windows box?

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.

      In that case, if you've got access to an HP-UX box,
      swlist -l file -s $PWD/filename.depot
      is The Right Way.
