While traversing the irc.openprojects.net IRC server, I came across an
interesting question of another user, and after spending a good twenty
minutes on trying to figure it out, I can't seem to. Hopefully somebody
here has an answer that does NOT include the RM and MV commands:
Here's how the original question was posed:
lets say in snafu.tar i have /mnt/foo/blah, i want to extract
/mnt/foo/blah/* to /blah, cwd is /blah how do i do that?
The way that I interpret this, explained in more detail:
snafu.tar contains files which were in the directory path /mnt/foo/blah,
and the filenames are:
and I want to extract bar1 thru bar5 into /blah instead of making it come
out as /blah/mnt/foo/blah/*
Make sense? Need more clarification? HELP!
