TAR - Consolidated Unix File Archive

Storage command from the historic UNIX Tape ARchive command. Currently used to store multiple files in an uncompressed data format. The TAR storage format may be used in conjunction with GNU Zip or other zip tool for archival compression.

A simplified extension, known as a “tarball”, combines the extensions into a shortened format denoted as a .TGZ file.
