2.6.3 Running --create with --verbose

If you include the --verbose (-v) option on the command line, tar will list the files it is acting on as it is working. In verbose mode, the create example above would appear as:

     $ tar --create --verbose --file=collection.tar blues folk jazz
     blues
     folk
     jazz

This example is just like the example we showed which did not use --verbose, except that tar generated the remaining lines

In the rest of the examples in this chapter, we will frequently use verbose mode so we can show actions or tar responses that you would otherwise not see, and which are important for you to understand.
