display the file contents of a large tar.Z file

Post by TingCho » Sun, 15 Jun 2003 02:38:38



I have a very large tar.Z file which I only display its file contents.
The steps I want to do are
1. gunzip bsmbld1210pkgd.tar.Z
2. tar tvf bsmbld1210pkgd.tar > bsmbld1210filecontent

However, step 1 fails because bsmbld1210pkgd.tar is too large to fit
in my hard disk.
This does not work either:
gunzip bsmbld1210pkgd.tar.Z | tar tvf -
gunzip bsmbld1210pkgd.tar.Z | tar tvf f -

Please help.
Thanks.

If you only want to see the content of the file you may want to install
lesspipe.sh. It's available at freshmeat.net and sourceforge.net. You
can then look at the content of archives or compressed files by the
command less.
