I am a web developper from Hamburg.

My main weapons of choice are PHP, JavaScript, and sometimes Java and recently some python. I feel most comfortable on a unix-like system featuring a powerful bash. I love to code via PhpStorm / IntelliJ IDEA. Some jobs are still best done in vim though.

My hobbies include programming (duh), hacking, science, listening to music, gaming and other rather mundane activities. Such as being an active member of the German Pirate Party.

comment Can tar discover the archive format when piping it in via wget?
@FaheemMitha New tar does not need uncompress flag. See askubuntu.com/a/107976/32792 for reference. And as I pointed out in my question: tar with tar xf myarchive.tar.gz. Or tar xf someotherarchive.tar.xz works. Piping them it in from wget is what causes trouble.

The point of the question was that tar xf does not need any uncompress flag, and I want to achive the exact same thing when piping an archive in from wget.
