the original tarball was created with
tar -cjvf foo.tar.bz
i need to find all of the dea* files in that tarball. typically i would just extract the entire tarball into a /tmp directory, but the system is low on space and the fully extracted tarball is larger then the remaining space on the / partition.
$ tar -xvf rx-2012-06-03-0100.tar.bz --wildcards --no-anchored 'dea*'
will that extract the dea* files to the location of the tarball, or to their original location on the server were the tarball was created from?
