The examples of untarring files in that section show the "old style"
command line parameters. Since tar supports the "new style"
getopts-compatible options and could be expected to drop support for the
older style somtime in the future, I suggest that these examples be
changed to the new style.

    tar xvzf filename.tar.gz
    tar -xvzf filename.tar.gz
