You're obviously just trying to increase your post count. And no, I'm not trying to do the same; I'm focusing on chastising meaningless posts. mad.gif

.TAR = Tape Archive...

Curious.. why would you need to open a TAR file in today's world. I thought TAR is more or less a dead format?

Ahh... back in the old CONNOR tape backup days.. TAR was a typical format for backup... never occured to me that it's still in use as a LINUX compression scheme.

Learn something new every day.

Just don't tell me someone has resurrected LZH... smile.gif
