I just downloaded the wavelet package wpafrac.zip from statlib. There are
several *.doc files in this zip archive. When I unzipped the archive my
virus checker (McAffee virus program) informed that all of these files are
infected with the CLEAR virus. The McAffee virus program prevented the
unzip program from writting those files to my disk.

I don't know what the CLEAR virus does, but I didn't really want to
experience it. So, be careful. Verbum sapientae sat.
