GNU tar is a popular open-source archiving utility used for creating and managing archive files, which are collections of files grouped together into a single file. GNU tar supports a wide range of archive file formats, including tar, cpio, and pax, and it can be used on various operating systems, such as Linux, Unix, and macOS. GNU tar is a command-line tool that provides a range of options for creating, extracting, and manipulating archive files. The basic syntax of GNU tar commands follows the format "tar [options] [file(s)]", where the options specify the action to be taken and the file(s) indicate the name(s) of the files to be processed.

GNU tar provides a range of options for creating archive files, including the ability to specify the compression level, set file permissions, exclude certain files or directories, and add metadata such as file ownership and timestamps. GNU tar also supports incremental backups, which allow users to add new or modified files to an existing archive without having to create a new archive from scratch. When extracting files from an archive, GNU tar can preserve file ownership and permissions, and it can automatically decompress files that were compressed during the archiving process. Overall, GNU tar is a powerful and versatile archiving utility that provides a range of options for creating and managing archive files.
