Hi,

I have a zip file in this format *.tar.gz. I only want to extract one of the files inside the gz file.

Hi,

#gunzip <>.tar.gz

This will give u the tar file.

now

# tar xvf <>.tar <here give the files u need to extract>

If u want to identify the files inside it try

#tar tvf <>.tar


Hope this helps...
