Download tar File

Most of the files for this study are available in the Unix compressed tar file raetaf03.tar.Z. The files can then be extracted by the unix command:

uncompress -c raetaf03.tar.Z | tar xvof -

The files raetaf.cgd and raetaf.cfl are not included in the tar file in order to limit the size of the tar file. They can be downloaded separately.

The file demo.txt provides some preliminary instructions. This case is still under development.
