Starts an operation in the middle of an archive. Use in conjunction with `--extract' (`--get', `-x') or `--list' (`-t').
If a previous attempt to extract files failed due to lack of disk
space, you can use `--starting-file=name' (`-K
name') to start extracting only after member name of the
archive. This assumes, of course, that there is now free space, or
that you are now extracting into a different file system. (You could
also choose to suspend
tar, remove unnecessary files from
the file system, and then resume the same
In this case, `--starting-file' is not necessary.) See also
