I've just returned from the first half of my vacation and to my delight I
found the R9C snapshots... Great!!! Too bad I am leaving again tomorrow...

One question: is VC++ needed only for werl.exe? I hope so.

One problem: the latest snapshot otp_src_P9C_2003-07-11.tar.gz gives errors
in cygwin when unpacking

Vlad@REDACTED ~/Mina dokument/projects
$ tar xfv otp_src_P9C_2003-07-11.tar
tar: This does not look like a tar archive
tar: Skipping to next header
tar: Archive contains obsolescent base-64 headers
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors

Vlad@REDACTED ~/Mina dokument/projects
$ tar xfz otp_src_P9C_2003-07-11.tar.gz
tar: Unexpected EOF in archive
tar: Unexpected EOF in archive
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

best regards,
