4.2 Advanced GNU tar Operations
Now that you have learned the basics of using GNU
tar, you may want to learn about further ways in which
tar can help you.
This chapter presents five, more advanced operations which you probably won’t use on a daily basis, but which serve more specialized functions. We also explain the different styles of options and why you might want to use one or another, or a combination of them in your
tar commands. Additionally, this chapter includes options which allow you to define the output from
tar more carefully, and provide help and error correction in special circumstances.
