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
