Obviously tar treats the string immediately after the f (file) as the
filename, if you specify the options with a leading '-', so just swap
the letters f and p or omit the "-" character before the options. (Not
the one at the end, which represents stdin.)

I usually use "tar xvfp" and it works fine.
