GNU tar or simply Tar, is an open source and free command-line program that provides users with the ability to create and extract tar archives, as well as various other types of archives.

For example, GNU tar can be used to extract files from several archive formats, to store additional files in supported archives, to update or to list files that are already stored in a supported archive.

Tar is a GNU project and it's name stands for tape archiver, as tar archives were initially used to conveniently store files on magnetic tapes. These days, tar is installed by default in all Linux operating systems.
