I have a tarfile which has the following structure:
- dir1 -- file - dir2 - dir3
If I try running
tar -xf tarfile.tar.gz dir1/file, dir1 containing the file will be created. I would like instead to just get the file without the directory in between. I could move the file and delete the directory, but I was wondering if the tar command offers support for doing that directly.
I am using Alpine Linux.
