Tarball extractor bash script "Dancepill"
is a fast extract script for Bash.The problem
You want to extract directory fast. Using midnight commander or other extraction tools is very slow. Use dancepill, in your .bashrc
Logout or source it in your current terminal and start extracting:e tarball.tar.gz
Please note the script introduces function "e"; stands for "extract" ;-)Additional features
If the archive does not contain only one file or directory, dancepill will create an extra directory
for you. No more extracted junk
in the current directory!License
