Pack and unpack tar.gz files

In howto on Jul 7, 2016 by theoryl Tagged:

I got these commands from https://arxiv.org/help/tar and https://arxiv.org/help/unpack

To pack:

tar -cvzf mystuff.tar.gz foo.tex fig1.eps fig2.eps

To unpack:

gunzip mystuff.tar.gz
tar -xvf mystuff.tar

Or more simply:

tar -xvzf mystuff.tar.gz

For additional humor, see https://xkcd.com/1168/ about tar commands.
