Archiving by using Tar places several files or the contents of a directory or directo-
ries into one file, which is commonly called a Tarball.Using Tarballs is a good way
to create backups and archives. Usually, tar files end with the .tar extension, which
is often compressed by using GZIP or ZIP to create a compressed archive of the files
or directory. Unlike RPM or the Debian Package Management System, a Tarball
doesn’t check for dependencies, it doesn’t require documentation, and it doesn’t
place the files where they belong in the Linux file structure. Tarball usage is almost
required when working with Linux, but package managers are improving rapidly
and someday the Tarball may be a thing of the past.
