How to extract a tar.gz file?


Thanks for helping in extracting those bz2 files, now I can't figure out how to extract tar.gz files. Any help would be appreciated.

Did you know that you get really good information when you type 'man <command>' on a command line?

Have a try on 'man tar'

Code:
tar -xzvf *.tar.gz

cd to the directory and do tar -xvf archive_name or tar -xvf /path/to/archive_name
