Frequently Asked Questions

How can I decompress the OSCAR Corpus?

OSCAR is distributed in split files that are compressed in order to save spave. However, some decompression programs have trouble dealing with gz files. Here are some programs that work well depending on OSes:

  • OSX/Linux: Use gzip -d FILE.gz.
  • Windows: Use 7zip
