2023163 - Downloading multispanning TAR archives

 

Symptom

An archive is in TAR multispanning format.


 

Other Terms

linux tar


 

Reason and Prerequisites

For multispanning archives, there are archives that are distributed to several files.

If the info and tar programs are properly installed at your Linux server, the command

              info tar

should give you access to the manual.


 

Solution

Download all archive files that belong together (<archive-name>P1.tar, <archive-name>P2.tar ) into a single directory. You cannot change the file names.

The command:

  tar -xvM  --file=<archive-name>P1.tar    --file=<archive-name>P2.tar

verbosely extracts the contents of tar archives to the current directory.

tar options:

  -x extract files from an archive

  -v verbosely list files processed

  -M multi-volume archive
