Unpacking: Tarballs (.tar) are usually compressed with bzip2 (.bz2). Unpack them inside a PAT runtime tree (/usr/share/pat for Unix, /pat10 for DOS, or add -r dir if elsewhere); files will be placed in the subdirectory data/body where body is mercury, venus, earth, etc. Data is distributed as plain text (when possible), along with a makefile (.mak) to compile it to PAT's binary format (when appropriate). Viewing: Dataset: pat -a dataset -D or "data dataset; add dataset; draw" • Skin: "image skin; add bg skin; draw" • Example:
# cd /usr/share/pat
# bzcat /wherever/dataset.tar.bz2 | tar xvf -
# make -f dataset.mak
% pat -a dataset -d x11 -D
