Unzipping TAR files with Alpha ZIP.

What are TAR files? TAR is a UNIX command which lets you store a number of different files within a single archive. TAR files are ideal for storing downloadable data, as they maintain the relative location of the files in the directory structure. Furthermore, TAR files enable you to transfer complex programs which may have many separate parts with internal relationships that must remain intact. With Alpha ZIP, unzipping TAR files is both easy and safe.
