I created tar archives with an absolute path to save the files.
/home/mydir/dir1/dir2/dir3/file1.dat /home/mydir/dir1/dir2/dir3/file2.dat /home/mydir/dir1/dir2/dir3/file3.dat
I would like to untar these archives skipping the leading part of the path,
/home/mydir/dir1. My files should be restored in any directory with this structure:
dir2/dir3/file1.dat dir2/dir3/file2.dat dir2/dir3/file3.dat
How can I do this with the tar command, or another way?
