yes.  The problem is that when you download a binary from the net ( using a
UNIX ftp client), it usually doesn't conform to VMS's file format, which is
fixed-length, 512 byte records.  There's a program (named MFTU) which can be
used to convert it, but I've found it simpler to just compile the sources
for unzip (there are after all only two directories to get).  

   Can you or anyone explain what you mean by "compile the sources for
unzip" ?

  He also went on to say :
   Your FTP client may have, in addition to ascii and binary modes, an
"image" mode - if so, you should download VMS files using that from  and bypass the whole issue.

    Does this mean that there is an FTP Client on that we can
download and that has an 'Image" mode?   If so, can you tell me in which
directory it is located?  There are a lot of directories on this site.
