Re: files in install tarballs

try running 
$ gunzip comp29.tgz
$ tar -f comp29.tar > comp29.txt

That will print a list of the files that are in it.  If you want a ls
-la style, then add the -v flag (tar -vf blah blah...)

Converting the above command to be used on the other files is left as
an exercise for the reader...;-)
