.Tar files:

Package: tar -cvf package.tar / dir / a / package / Unpack: tar -xvf package.tar

The TAR file format is common on Linux and Unix systems, but only to store data, not compress it.

.Gz files:

Compress: gzip -9 file.txt.gz Decompress: gzip -d file.txt.gz

With this command we will only compress an already packaged or regular file

.Zip files:

Compress: zip file.zip folder Decompress: unzip archivo.zip

.Tar.gz files:

Compress: tar -czvf packed-compressed.tar.gz / folder / to / pack-compress / Decompress: tar -xzvf file.tar.gz

A file TAR.GZ is a compressed TAR file with the standard GNU zip (gzip) compression algorithm. It contains one or more compressed files and is commonly used in Unix operating systems to package files, programs and installers
