[chirp_users] Daily build questions

Sorry to have to ask...   But when I follow the link to the daily build 
(as is offered below), I am somewhat confused, as I see a LOT of 
possibilities in the "grab it from the following location:" result, as 

[TXT] 	Model_Support.html 
	09-Jan-2013 00:05 	171K
[ ] 	SHA1SUM 
09-Jan-2013 00:05 	472
[TXT] 	Test_Report.html 
	09-Jan-2013 00:05 	47K
[ ] 	chirp-daily-20130109-installer.exe 
	09-Jan-2013 00:05 	9.9M
[ ] 	chirp-daily-20130109-win32.zip 
	09-Jan-2013 00:05 	12M
[ ] 	chirp-daily-20130109.app.zip 
	09-Jan-2013 00:05 	398K
[ ] 	chirp-daily-20130109.tar.gz 
	09-Jan-2013 00:05 	266K
[ ] 	rpttool-0.3.tar.gz 
	09-Jan-2013 00:05 	142K

     Now, the model support and test report is obvious, and the one that 
has the "win32.zip" is fairly obvious to me.  (I assume this is used for 
Windows XP?)

     But the ones that end in ".exe" and ".app.zip" are not at all 
clear, I am sorry to have to admit.

     The ones that end in "tar.gz" are quite possibly to be used if one 
uses Linux, I am guessing.

     My questions:
- Must one download all of the above files?  (Or, just one?)
- Which is the one to use, when one wants to use XP, as an example?

     I have looked through all of the help files here:

     In looking, I had gone to each of the sections that are mentioned, 
and have searched for the word "daily."  I found nothing that offered 
how to deal with the daily build.  (Maybe I missed it..?)

     This is a tremendous project, and I THANK THE FOLKS THAT HAVE PUT 
SO VERY MUCH EFFORT into this service!  My point is NOT to be critical 
in any way, let me be clear on this.  It is just that this old phart is 
looking for a way to possibly streamline the use of this magnificent 

     Thank you, and 73!
