My separate post on IUP may help to explain why.

Fortunately I have the habit of doing 'tar -tzf' first.

I did not have this problem.

Now I come to your "showhead".  It needed some persistence, too :-/

1. One has to unpack scr.tgz first.  Not hard to guess, fortunately.
2. showhead.lua requires a parameter, which must be one of the names
    in the scr subdirectory.  The message you get otherwise is
    informative enough so that you know the next time round:
    scr/nil.scr: No such file or directory
