I think   tmp/usdbraw.gz   was an example and Dirk had placed the file 
there.  You need to point create_usdb.pl to where you have usdbraw.

My experience is that you must unzip the file first.    
      gunzip usdbraw.gz
then run create_usdb.pl

if you have usdbraw.gz in the sysop home directory:

cd /home/sysop
gunzip usdbraw.gz
/spider/perl/create_usdb.pl usdbraw

then load usdb           

Note that both gunzip and create_usdb.pl delete their input files, so if 
you want to keep a backup copy, do it before you gunzip it.
