When I ran this command:
ogr2ogr topo.shp flowe86hyp.e00
I got this error:
ERROR 4: This looks like a compressed E00 file and cannot be processed directly. You may need to uncompress it first using the E00compr library or the e00conv program.

I've done some research on
e00conv so far, not a lot, but some, and have so far not been able to find a simple download that lets me build/make/install the program(s) on a mac. The
e00compr I found here (https://github.com/fd00/yacp) on github had some kind of weird makefiles (apparently according to its README) for cygwin but none that I was able to use for the
make command on my mac. And I found some e00compr source code at one point but it was all microsoft builds.
Anyway, I'm looking to use something like Grass, ogr2ogr, or some other command line tool to convert this e00 into shp and apparently am needing to uncompress it somehow. I've gone ahead and hosted a sample of the
.e00 file on google drive here: (https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B5inC0VAuhH1Qm9OUGhGUFNOdk0/edit?usp=sharing) in case any of you would like to inspect it.
