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
lha e nov.lha
4. “.tar.gz” or “.tgz”
tar -zxvf nov.tar.gz
tar -zxvf nov.tgz
5. “.gz” or “.z”
uncompress nov.tar.z use this command if you used “compress’ command to compress this file
tar xvf nov.tar
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.
