Just use cd. You can use cd in a script just like you would at the command line. cd /what/ever/the/source/directory/is tar cvf ../htmlstuff.tar /cc.html mkdir -p /where/ever/you/want/it cd /where/ever/you/want/it tar xvf /what/ever/the/source/directory/htmlstuff.tar This would eliminate the directory tree being recreated where you unroll the tar presuming that fantasy path I first cd to is, in your example, /var/web/data/verion If you want to preserve that directory path in the new place you do cd / tar cvf /htmlstuff.tar /what/ever/the/source/directory/is/cc.html mkdir -p /where/ever/you/want/it cd /where/ever/you/want/it tar xvf /htmlstuff.tar You can put that in a loop in your script if it can pick up the file names and directory paths to plug in the commands. > eg: > > tar cvf html.tar /var/web/data/verion/cc.html > > untar html.tar /var/web/data/root/cc.html > > Thank you > > > > > --------------------------------- > > > Yahoo!
