gz is the suffix added by the unix GZIP compression program.  You might be 
able to use WinZIP to decompress it ... if you can't, try going over to 
http://www.gzip.org for an appropriate executable (hmmm... I just noticed 
they have an AS400 executable, might be worth a try).  The resultant SAVF 
can be uploaded to the 400 via FTP (as usual, use binary mode and create 
the target save file before uploading it).

The maintainers of the CPAN site are unix heads, so they did their standard 
compression on the file.
