re: What do you Google EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. and never just memorize? VIEW POST


at least extracting is easy (say it in a german accent) tar -xzf "xtract ze files"

well what works for me is tar -xzvf "xtract ze vucking files"
No kidding that's how remember it

That's a great way! Jajajaaj

But it's important to note that tar is smart enough to detect the format so I prefer the general tar -vxf

Even though as a German with decent English pronunciation this is a little bit insulting, I'll probably never forget this ever again. Thanks! πŸ™ˆ

Isn't that for zipped tar files? -xzf = extract zipped (tar) file.

I figured out how to remember it. To create tar, use c option and for extracting replace c with x ==> $tar will remain same for both Lol :) . tar -cvf filename.tar file/dir_path && tar -xvf filename.tar.
