UZ(1) Mtools Users Manual UZ(1)

NAME

uz – gunzips and extracts a gzip’d tar’d archive

SYNOPSIS

uz file

DESCRIPTION

uz extracts a gzip’d tar’d archive, that is a tar(1) archive compressed
with the gzip(1) utility. It is not strictly necessary on Debian
GNU/Linux, because the GNU tar(1) program provides the same capability
with the command

tar -xzf file

but this utility is provided in the mtools package for other platforms
and is retained here for completeness.

AUTHOR

Robert King (Robert.King@mailbox.gu.edu.au) wrote this page for the
