comment Untar only a certain number of files from a large tarball
You can get a list of the filenames using "tar -tf", take the first 50 using "head", then feed that list into another tar command as the list of filenames to extract. Like this: "tar -xf file.tar --no-anchored `tar -tf file.tar|head -50`"
