TarTool is a tiny windows command line tool to extract tar gzip (tar.gz or tgz extension) files.
You can download TarTool , unzip and run TarTool.exe as a command line executable.
After searching the interwebs for tools that would extract tar gzip files , I was disappointed since there was no simple tool to extract tar gzip files on my windows machine.
There are a few tools out there like WinRAR etc., but I found them too bloated for my task.
So I wrote a little tool using SharpZipLib, the open source Zip, GZip, Tar and BZip2 library (great job guys, BTW).
Update (05/06/2009 17:00 CST) :
TarTool now has an addtional option to untar tar file formats.
TarTool -x sample.tar temp
will untar the sample.tar contents into the temp folder.
Update (04/02/2012 11:35 PM CDT)
bzip2 decompression is now supported in TarTool 2.0 Beta .
TarTool -xj sample.tar.bz2 temp
TarTool -j sample.bz2
