Extract tar.gz

Operating systems : Linux

Extracting tar.gz files in Linux, command line:

tar zxvf file.tar.gz

- z : filter the archive through gzip [ 1 ]

- x : extract files from an archive

- v : list the files processed

- f : use archive file

The command extracts the contents of a compressed archive to the current directory.

Tar creates an archive of one or several files. Then gzip is used to compress it. Or both processes are made at once by tar only, with corresponding options employed. The duality of nature - archived and compressed after - is reflected in the extension of the file ("tar.gz") and requires two procedures to be performed while extracting: decompressing and unpacking. Hence both z (decompress it) and x (unpack it) in the command.

Lightweight web browsers for Linux

 

Netsurf : Hv3 : Dillo : Links2 Nowadays the real lightweight web browsers are those without JavaScript and Flash support or with a very limited one. Because a web browser even with the lightest interface becomes heavyweight working with the modern internet crammed with scripts and multimedia. These browsers are not numerous and some of them are moving towards getting JavaScript support - i.e. towards dropping out of the "Lightweight web browsers" category. Lightweight web browsers may be more advanced - with CSS support. Or less - no CSS support or close to that. Netsurf - / home page / Currently the most advanced lightweight web browser for Linux. CSS support is quite solid. Good support of HTML. Feeble support for JavaScript - may be disabled by default. There is a version of Netsurf for *nix systems that can be run without X, using framebuffer of graphic adapter. Created initially for RISC OS and only later ported to Linux. There are also versions for other *nix systems, for AmigaOS, AmigaOS 4, Atari OS, BeOS/Haiku, Mac OS X, MorphOS.
