Anil Garg disturbed my sleep to write: > p.s. i looked earlier at -t, infact i was also trying to use -x with -t.
Logical enough, but not correct. -t and -x are mutually exclusive. -t means "just list the contents"; -x means "extract the contents" (ie, get files out of the tarball). The tar command won't let you do both. Hope this helps, Hugh -- Saint Aardvark the Carpeted [EMAIL PROTECTED] Because the plural of Anecdote is Myth.
