Over 10 years ago, I wrote my first blog post. Since then, I've authored books, had kids, traveled the world, found Trish and blogged about it all.

gunzip and tar

You *nix gurus probably have know this for a while, but I didn't. To gunzip and untar a *.tar.gz or *.tgz file with one command, try this:

gunzip -c ips6.0.tar.gz* | tar xvf -

It works on Solaris (9) and OS X (10.2.2 with gnutar), and therefore I assume it'll work on Linux. I learned that at the portal class I taught last week. Good stuff, committing to memory...

How about tar xzf?

Even better - thanks!

It might be better to get in the habit of using gnutar(for X and solaris). gnutar -xvzf file.tar.gz
