Decompressing Files

Anything ending in .zip, .gz, or .tgz you need to unzip using gunzip from the command line:

gunzip foobar.tgz

In the case of .tgz (which is basically shorthand for .tar.gz) you will now have a .tar file of same name. You then untar this with the following:

tar -xvf foobar.tar

The -xvf in this command is:
-x extract
-v verbose (tell me what it's doing)
-f file as a source (the default is the /dev/tape, or something like that, since tar is a 'tape archive')

Get it from: http://www.simtel.net/pub/pd/15762.shtml

CT2000,

I would like an explanation of the grade you gave on this question.

You have one of the worst grading histories I have ever seen on this site.

If you fail to respond I will remove all of your question points and you will not be able to answer questions while I wait for staff to review my request that your account be closed for your abuse of the experts.
