Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Let's say that we have files archived / stored in the tape (refers to tapes like LTO and DTL) as shown below, where the first 2 digits before the dash is your camera id, the 2 digits after the dash represents the hour, the next 2 digits for the minutes and the last 2 digits for the seconds:
Here's the case of this thread, what if I want to extract a range (say from 10:30 up to 10:55 of camera id 2) that will be coming from a tape in the Tape Archive and by getting it in one pass (or executing the tar command just once)?
Here's the command I'm currently using but this one extracts the archive in the tape until it reaches an end of file and then places it in a directory named multimedia:
tar -C multimedia -xvpf /dev/nst0 data1
So if I use this, I have to remove the files not needed and retain the files with the time range & camera specified. Doing that isn't efficient at all since you use up disk space and waste time. What will be the command for this case? If I get the .mpg file, I should also get the .mp3 file.
