Exactly. I wondered, when I saw the entry in tar(1)'s manpage, how many other little tricks I don't know because I just do it the old way. If I ever get a supply of tuits (round ones are best, apparently), I might start re-reading the documentation for things I already know how to do, just to find out what I'm missing.
