Re: KDE compression options: tar, zip, or rar



* Prep test data (some file to be packed)
* run command under "time" command

$ time tar -czf testout.tar.gz ./test-data

real    0m0.520s
user    0m0.480s
sys     0m0.040s

$ time zip -rq testout.zip ./test-data

real    0m0.474s
user    0m0.460s
sys     0m0.016s

Simple! Do this with uncompress too.

Command syntax of each command is found in each man pages.

time can be shell builtin or independent command.


Thank you Osamu but I stress that compression / decompression time is
not important for this application. That is why I asked on the list
what the other advantages and disadvantages of the different formats
are.

Thanks.
