Untar File to a specific location !
Is it possible to untar a tar file into a specific location instead of the current directory ? For example if I have test.tar in /home/test and want to extract the contents of the tar into /tmp/, can it be done.
Did try searching around, but everywhere untarrring seems to be done only into the current directory.
I know copying the tar to a specific location and untarring is just one more command, but I wanted to know whether I could do away with that extra command !
