How to make a tar file...
at least extracting is easy (say it in a german accent) tar -xzf "xtract ze files"
and -czf == 'compress ze files'
well what works for me is tar -xzvf "xtract ze vucking files"
No kidding that's how remember it
this...is actually brilliant! lol
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
Thank you so much.
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.
tar -cvf filename.tar file/dir_path
tar -xvf filename.tar
