De/compression Files

Compression and Decompression operation really easy to do with GUI application but some times you want to pack or unpack files. this operation I believe it much more easier sometimes with terminal than using GUI application. and I will show how easy to do it now.

Using file called : “Nov” with different compression extensions

Extensions

1. “.bz2”

bunzip2 nov.bz2

2. “.zip”

unzip nov.zip

3. “.lha”

lha e nov.lha

4. “.tar.gz” or “.tgz”

tar -zxvf nov.tar.gz

tar -zxvf nov.tgz

5. “.gz” or “.z”

gunzip nov.gz

gunzip nov.z

6. “tar.z”

uncompress nov.tar.z        use this command if you used “compress’ command to compress this file

7. “.tar”

tar xvf nov.tar

8. “.zip”

compress to files into one file called nov.zip

zip nov.zip nov1 nov2

nov1 and nov2 are files will be compressed into nov.zip

That’s it for now. :)
