comment What is the advantage of using 'tar' today?
Hmm, tar keeps soft links. I can recall back in the doing: "tar cf - | ( cd /somewhere/else ; tar xf -)" rather a lot because "cp" didn't have a flag to respect soft links. Don't know if it does today - if I encountered the problem, I'd probably just use 'tar' this way again.
