4.6 Looking Ahead: The Rest of this Manual
You have now seen how to use all eight of the operations available to
tar, and a number of the possible options. The next chapter explains how to choose and change file and archive names, how to use files to store names of other files which you can then call as arguments to
tar (this can help you save time if you expect to archive the same list of files a number of times), and so forth.
If there are too many files to conveniently list on the command line, you can list the names in a file, and
tar will read that file. See section Reading Names from a File.
There are various ways of causing
tar to skip over some files, and not archive them. See section Choosing Files and Names for tar.
