I know that I’m not the only one who fights with
tar -xvjf versus
tar -xvzf (or even what the four options are!). The reason that I know I’m not the only one is because I found this on the web this morning:
Do The Right eXtraction!
## Instead of tar -xvjf foo.tar.bz2 ## Use dtrx foo.tar.bz2
I hope this helps everyone as much as it helped me!
