TAR : Java Glossary


TAR (Tape Archive) is an older archive format popular on Unix systems. It does not provide compression. You can unpack it on windows with free utility called PowerArchiver or with a shareware one called WinRar. WinZip supports all operations on TAR files except creating new TAR files and adding to TAR files.
