How do you extract files from a tarball?
Tarballs can be extracted by using the tar command:
Tar –xvf <filename.tar>
In this command, it is the X switch that tells the tar to extract the tarball. The V switch is optional; it specifies a verbose output. The F switch is required; it tells the tar that you are about to specify the file name of the tarball file.
