Say I have a file
foo.tbz2 in a directory. I want to extract the
tar file from the archive, but to a different directory. It seems like
bunzip2 will only extract the archive to the same directory as the archive. Am I missing something?
This works, but I'm wondering if there is a better way:
cd /another/directory bunzip2 -k -c /original/directory/foo.tbz2
