Tape archive

Tar files (short for 'tape archive') are a type of file that combines multiple files into a single, compressed archive file. They are commonly used in Unix and Linux systems, but can also be used on other operating systems such as Windows. Tar files use the .tar file extension and are created using the tar command in the terminal. They are often used to distribute software or transfer large amounts of data over the internet. They can be uncompressed and extracted using various tools, such as the tar command or a program such as WinZip or 7-Zip.
