One more vote for pax, well worth learning. The man page is a little
daunting on first reading, but in actual use it's easier to understand and
remember than other archiving utilities. Plus it's good for copying
My favorite use case is "pax -zf foo.tar.gz" to list the files (to see if
everything will be put in a directory or not) and then adding an "r" to
the options to actually unpack the archive.
