6. Choosing Files and Names for tar

Certain options to tar enable you to specify a name for your archive. Other options let you decide which files to include or exclude from the archive, based on when or whether files were modified, whether the file names do or don’t match specified patterns, or whether files are in specified directories.

This chapter discusses these options in detail.
