Description🔵 The tar.gz format is a compressed archive file format used to store multiple files in a single file. It is a combination of two compression methods: TAR (Tape Archive) and GZIP. The TAR format is used to bundle multiple files into a single file, while the GZIP format is used to compress the resulting TAR file to reduce its size.
Technical details🔵 The TAR format preserves file metadata such as permissions, ownership, and timestamps, and can store files of any type and format. The GZIP format compresses the TAR file using the DEFLATE algorithm, which is a lossless compression algorithm that reduces the size of the file without losing any data. The resulting tar.gz file is a single compressed archive file that can be easily transferred or shared. It can be decompressed and extracted using various utilities, including command-line tools like tar and gzip, as well as graphical user interface tools like 7-Zip, WinRAR, and WinZip.
