How to tar(Zip)/untar(Unzip) in Ubuntu Linux

Its bit confusing and time consuming if you are not frequently doing tar and untar.

Here is an example to tar and untar using Linux tar command.


To Tar:

tar –cvzf your_tarfilename folder_to_tar


tar –xvzf your_tarfilename

tar –cvzf Yourfilename.tar.gz FOLDER_TO_TAR

This will zip (tar) the FOLDER_TO_TAR folder with the name Yourfilename.tar.gz

tar –xvzf Yourfilename.tar.gz

This will unzip (untar) the file as FOLDER_TO_TAR folder.
