file.tar.gz and file.gz

I really gon't know the difference between file.tar.gz and file.gz .

I hope I can find some information .


Another subject is : How can I compress a file in the format file.tar.gz or file.gz ?

What are the programs available for this ?


* Can I use winzip to extract files in the format file.tar.gz or file.gz ?


thank you

Read Traveller's post on this subject.

A .gz is a single compressed file. A .tar.gz is a collection of compressed files. I don't think winzip will handle it, but I'm not 100% sure - try TugZip - it's free and you can create and extract most compression formats (Note: .tgz and .tar.gz are the same)

Winzip is able to read them, but I don't think it is able to create them (but I'm not completely sure of it).

it doesnt cr8 them. try WinRAR or imploder. even 7Zip is gud. i use winrar. u can try CHAOS archiver. it's too gud...and free...

For frigs sake does it take that long to type create that you must shorten it to cr8??? Seriously if you are going to take the time to post atleast type your words out.. I can deal with acronyms in moderation but cr8 is just plain lazy...

Anyway yeah Winzip is fine with them...
