In this lab, we'll create tar archives from various sources, and then use the compression tools to create compressed versions of those archives, comparing compression algorithms' apparent merits. We'll also investigate the contents of compressed archives as well as uncompress them back to disk, either in their entirety or extracting a file from a compressed archive.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
