How To extract a single file from an archive

To extract a single file from an archive, do the following:
# tar zxf archfile.tgz –include=”filetoextract”

You can use patterns as well:
# tar zxf archfile.tgz –include=”filetoextract*”

‘filetoextract’ should contain the full path.

To check file’s full path, do the following:

# tar tf archfile.tgz
