UNTAR FILES USING WILDCARD
Posted on 2006-07-13
I need to figure out a way to untar a series of files, updated daily, whose names vary each day based upon the date.
Here is the code I am using to untar one file
tar -xvf /kunden/homepages/23/d116101914/htdocs/web/mls/zips/pics-condos-20060705.tar
The problem is that the name of the .tar file(s) change daily and I cannot be around to unzip them each day. Therefore I need a script that will enable a .tar wilcard.
Any suggestions? I am quite eager to resolve this.
