I saw a post on somewhere once on how to remember how to extract something with tar, so now whenever I do, I remember it as 'xtract ze vucking files'
function tar-wrapper switch $argv case extract command tar -xaf $argv end end
put in your startup and extend as needed
(-x: extract, -a: auto-detect compression, -z: use gzip compression specifically, -v: verbose, -f: the files)
@Novimatrem Nice! The only important part is that “f” comes last, though. “tar xzvf foo.tar.gz” is short for “tar -x -z -v -f foo.tar.gz”, where “-f” means “the next argument is going to be the filename to extract”.
