You can open them and read the scripts in BBEdit under OS X. I would imagine that the free version, TextWrangler, would be able to do the same.

I was also able to open them in Gedit on Ubuntu but Gedit complained about some of the “binary” data not being correctly encoded UTF-8. Again I could see the scripts.

That is a lot of code !!!
