Hi and sorry that you are having difficulties downloading the examples.
Some users have reported to us that some combinations of Browser version and Linux 'tar' command version may not support the compressed tarballs available for download.
As a workaround, please follow the instructions at the top of the Code Examples page:
If you click on the filename in your browser then you will prompted to
either open or save the file. Once saved, the file should be opened with:
tar -zxf <name_of_file> OR gunzip <name_of_file.tgz> ; tar -xf <name_of_file.tar>
This will create the example directory structure.
Try the second 'two step' command - hopefully this workaround will resolve the problem for you.
If you still have difficulties, please send us the exact filename of the file you downloaded to your drive, and the exact size in bytes (e.g. send us an 'ls -l FILE' output from your machine) and we will investigate further.
