    Help with allposters
    I am in my ssh/shell on my server. I typed in the command
    gunzip -d -c allposters*.tar.gz | tar xvf.

    What I get is:
    tar: Olld option 'f' requires an argument.
    Try tar --help for more information.

    I went there, but don't really know enough about this to know what to do.

    Help would be appreciated.

    Don't forget the dash at the end of the line. (also, there's a space before that dash).

    I had that file small so I could read as I went and the ' -' was on the next line and I did'nt see it.
    I will pay closer attention and not bother you with DUH things!
