1. NAME

uz - gunzips and extracts a gzip'd tar'd archive

2. SYNOPSIS

uz file

3. DESCRIPTION

uz extracts a gzip'd tar'd archive, that is a tar(1) archive compressed with the gzip(1) utility. It is not strictly necessary on Debian GNU/Linux, because the GNU tar(1) program provides the same capability with the command

tar -xzf file but this utility is provided in the mtools package for other platforms and is retained here for completeness.
