tar documents the compressed formats accepted:
Filter data through COMMAND. It must accept the -d option, for
decompression. The argument can contain command line options.
Filter the archive through bzip2(1).
Filter the archive through xz(1).
--lzip Filter the archive through lzip(1).
--lzma Filter the archive through lzma(1).
--lzop Filter the archive through lzop(1).
Do not use archive suffix to determine the compression program.
-z, --gzip, --gunzip, --ungzip
Filter the archive through gzip(1).
-Z, --compress, --uncompress
Filter the archive through compress(1).
but requires the de-/compressors be installed in your PATH;
it forks a process to run the de-/compressor on a pipe.
Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
