In the sectionof the book generally describing how software is to be
installed, an example "tar xvf" is given. I notice it is not consistent
with the usage shown in bzip2. I haven't yet looked to see if there are
In chapter 5, the following text use the -xvf form of tar parameters.
With a plain tar, you have to use constructions like bzcat
file.tar.bz|tar xv or tar --use-compress-prog=bunzip2 -xvf
Wouldn't it be better if these could be consistent for those not
that familiar with tar?
