I would like to use tar without no verbose.
However if use tar -cf this produces the list of file names.

How can this be turned off?

Hi,
there is no "quiet" option for tar, afaik. Omitting "-v" should be enough to suppress all output!
Anyway, if this doesnt work for your tar implementation,  you could do
tar -cf ... ... ... ...   >/dev/null
so you will only see possible error messages.
