Psst. Open beta.

Wow, didn't really expect you to read this far down. The latest iteration of the site is in open beta. It's a gentle open beta-- not in prime-time just yet. It's being hosted over at UpGuard (link) and you are more than welcome to give it a shot. Couple things:

  • » The open beta is running a copy of the database that will not carry over to the final version. Don't post anything you don't mind losing.
  • » If you wish to use your user account, you will probably need to reset your password.
Your feedback is appreciated via the form on the beta page. Thanks! -Jon & CLFU Team

Unzip and untar a *.tar.gz file in one go to a specific directory

A *.tar.gz file needs to be unzipped & then untarred. Previously I might have unzipped first with

gunzip -d file.tar.gz

and then untarred the result with

tar -xvf file.tar

(Options are extract, verbose, file)

Using the -z (decompress) option on tar avoids the use of gzip (or gunzip) first.

Additionally the -C option will specify the directory to extract to.

Alternatives

There is 1 alternative - vote for the best!

Terminal - Alternatives

Know a better way?

If you can do better, submit your command here.

What others think

Modern versions of tar don't need -z to decompress, they figure it out for themselves:

tar xfv stuff.tar.gz tar xfv other.tar.bz2
