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
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.
