What is a taz file and how do I open a taz file?

TAZ files are TAR zipped files or UNIX TAR archives that are compressed via UNIX compression algorithm. TAZ files are used to archive file groups used in UNIX systems and they mainly deal with TAR files and Z files. When UNIX starts to compress TAR files into one archive, these zipped and compressed files now use the TAZ file extension. Users can extract TAZ files if they decompress these files first and then extract the archive. Typing commands such as “cat filename.taz| zcat| tar xvf” can also be used to extract TAZ files. TAZ is actually short for TAR.Z since it deals with TAR files so much. This is why it a bit similar with TAR files. TAZ files also have a header block on each file containing unaltered information of the file written in ASCII. Two consecutive blocks filled with zero marks the end part of these files. TZ file extension can also be used by TAR zipped files.
