Okay, Markus I made the tarball r.lzw2z.tar.gz (I have no control over 
the server's Mime/Types, Shift-Left Button prompts for download in
Netscrape!).  I've also written a little GRASS style help
file (which is included in the new tarball).  The helpfile with link
to the source tarball is:


or grab the tarball directly with:

wget http://www.jps.net/egm2/r.lzw2z/r.lzw2z.tar.gz

Maybe some people want to mirror this should I not be able to keep it
posted for whatever reason?
