Creating tar.gz archives.

I'm looking for software to do this. Any good free ones out there?

Mainstay compression for *nix systems. But, it has been around from at least the mid 80's.

What software do you need beyond tar and gzip? This is from memory here, don't go cutting and pasting and saying I misled you. I haven't done this in some years now.

tar -cvf tarfile_filename "Files_to_backup"

gzip -9 tarfile_filename
