### Unpacking the Software on Your Pi

Having transferred the distribution file onto your Pi, unpack it:


    $ tar xvf /path/to/pidp8i-VERSION.tar.gz

The file name will vary depending on what you downloaded and [how you
transferred it to the Pi](#transferring).  After unpacking it, you will


have a new directory beginning with `pidp8i`.  `cd` into that directory,
then proceed with the [configuration](#configuring) steps below.

### Unpacking the Software on Your Pi

Having transferred the distribution file onto your Pi, unpack it with a
command roughly like:

    $ tar xvf /path/to/pidp8i-VERSION.tar.gz

The final argument to that command will vary depending on what you
downloaded, [how you transferred it to the Pi](#transferring), and where
you put it. If you used the `wget` command above, the path is simply
`pidp8i.tar.gz`, for example. After unpacking the tarball, you will have
a new directory beginning with `pidp8i`.  `cd` into that directory, then
proceed with the [configuration](#configuring) steps below.
