|Short description=GNU version of the tar archiving utility.
|Full description='''GNU tar''' is an archiver that creates and handles file archives in various formats. You can use tar to create file archives, to extract files from previously created archives, store additional files, or update or list files which were already stored. The program saves many files together into a single tape or disk archive, and can restore individual files from the archive. It includes multivolume support, the ability to archive sparse files, automatic archive compression/decompression, remote archives and special features that allow 'tar' to be used for incremental and full backups. The supported archive formats are: V7 tar, GNU Tar, ustar and POSIX (also known as pax interchange format). Tar can also read and extract 'star' archives. Tar can direct its output to available devices, files, or other programs (using pipes). Tar can even access remote devices or files (as archives).

=== Note ===
 +
The name "tar" originally came from the phrase "Tape ARchive", but archives need not (and these days, typically do not) reside on tapes.

The FSF version, named GNU tar, was derived from public domain tar by Jay Fenlason and Joy Kendall. Amy Gorin and Melissa Weisshaus contributed to the manual. GNU tar has been maintained in turn by Thomas Bushnell BSG, François Pinard, Paul Eggert, and Sergey Poznyakoff.
