JoSch's rant about one of my edits

Before you edit things like: 'tar xzf' to 'tar --extract --gzip --file' in Manual_Debian use your head and think how often you rather want to type 27 letters instead of 7 in your terminal.... it is absolutely useless to write these arguments out because EVERYBODY knows what the tar arguments xzf and czf mean - oh and btw in recent versions of tar you can leave out the f parameter. --JoSch 09:16, 30 January 2009 (UTC)

Well my omniscient Unix wizard. Nobody prevents you to actually type 'tar xzf' in your terminal if you are instructed to enter the command 'tar --extract --gzip --file'. --Christz 11:17, 30 January 2009 (UTC)
