How can I restore certain files from tar
Customer wanted to know how to extract individual files from tape
with the tar command.
I explained that he would do the following:
tar -xvf /dev/rmt0 \
Customer then asked if he could somehow get a list of files
and be given the choice of extracting or ignoring each file on the
tape. this would be done as follows:
.tar -xwvf /dev/rmt0
The customer would then be prompted whether he wanted to extract each
file or ignore each file.
pax -rvf /dev/rmt0 -pmop "directoryname/*.ps" "directoryname/*.wp"
The pax command will read both tar and cpio (using the -c flag) formats.
The pax command will allow for wildcards to be given.
