One way to extract a .tar.Z file:
$ zcat file.tar.Z | tar xvf -
why not tar zvxf file.tar.Z? you should really name your files .tar.gz or .tgz if they are gzipped.
Ahh.. I didn’t know that .tar.Z is the same as tar.gz. In that case, of course tar xzvf file.tar.Z is simpler.Thanks.
it’s not supposed to be, but you managed to use zcat, so I assume it’s a .gz (gzip) masquerading as a .Z (compress). if it was really a .Z, you should have been able to do xvf, axvf, Zxvf, -I compress xvf, etc.
