The parsing is not done "online". The .tar.gz file is first downloaded to a
temporary directory (the location of which is printed to the screen after the
download for later use). If you already have a .tar.gz file downloaded, you
can supply the filename to the getGEO() function to skip the download part.
See the help for getGEO().
Hope that helps.
