Hi, I have a question about tar files.
Let's say I want to back up my /home directory:
$ tar cvzf backup.tgz /home
So now I have backup.tgz. When I extract it, I notice it extracts into the same directory as my backup, /home. What if, for instance, I want it to extract into the /usr/blah directory instead? How would I do that? Does tar have a "dest =" type of option in it?
