As an aside, you can also work off the windows version.  The windows
and unix versions are almost the same, and the core code, I believe,
is identical.  (Windows / unix differences are packaged in ifdef's.)

I never downloaded (or used) quickfix-logviewer.  (I only downloaded
quickfix-1.13.3.zip and quickfix-1.13.3.tar.gz.)

I believe that the third-party windows programs 7-zip and winrar will both
handle tar.gz.  (I think you can also get windows versions of tar and gzip,
but I haven't done that.)

Again, you don't need quickfix-logviewer to build and run the core QuickFIX
code, but it could be a nice utility to have.

Good luck.
