Decompression danger — Unzip only in RISC OS

In most cases the files offered here are compressed into a Zip file, and the usual caveat applies:

Use only RISC OS to open (decompress) the Zip file. Do not use a foreign operating system (such as Windows or Mac or Linux) to decompress RISC OS files, because it will mangle the Acorn filetypes within the Zip.

The standard RISC OS harddisc will have !SparkFS or !Sparkplug or a similar utility to do the job; it normally lives in the Utilities directory.
