Previous: Applications, Up: operations


4.7 Looking Ahead: The Rest of this Manual

You have now seen how to use all eight of the operations available to tar, and a number of the possible options. The next chapter explains how to choose and change file and archive names, how to use files to store names of other files which you can then call as arguments to tar (this can help you save time if you expect to archive the same list of files a number of times), and so forth.

If there are too many files to conveniently list on the command line, you can list the names in a file, and tar will read that file. See files.

There are various ways of causing tar to skip over some files, and not archive them. See Choosing.
