Windows 7 extract from .tar and concatenate

Hi,

I received a .tar MySql backup that has a folder with multiple .gz files. I need to extract each of the .gz mySql.sql files from the .tar and concatenate them. I'm on windows 7 and the Linux command I was provided is:

for file in *.sql.gz; do zcat $file | mysql $YOUR_INTERNAL_NEW_COPY_DB$; done

Hoping someone can translate this to a windows compatible batch or winRar/7Zip command.

Thx,
Fred

I recently used "Peazip" to work with a .tar.gz file successfully.  The site lists split/join files as a feature, though I haven't used it.  Hope that helps.

Were you able to try the Peazip feature I mentioned?

I did try Peazip. The join function does not appear to be appropriate for the use I need. What I had to end up doing was extracting the 200+ separate .gz MySql tables to a directory and then use a dos command to concatenate them all. Not the one command solution I was looking for that appears to be usable in Linux.
