Compressing and uncompressing directory contents

Oracle Tips by Burleson Consulting

When the contents of a directory are seldom used, it may be prudent to compress that directory’s contents to conserve disk space.

If you are planning to send the contents of a directory to another media, another server via a network connection, or maybe to another user via an e-mail attachment, it would also be prudent to compress the directory contents to save transmission time. The following examples show an easy method of compressing a directory into a tar archive file and also uncompressing the archive into its’ original structure.

directory:~

$ tar cvf examples.tar examples create examples.tar archive

examples/
examples/declaration.txt
examples/gettysburg.txt
examples/preamble.txt

Directory:~
$


Directory:/tmp

$ tar xvf examples.tar extract from examples.tar archive

examples/
examples/declaration.txt
examples/gettysburg.txt
examples/preamble.txt
