In tar to extract a .bz2 file I need to implement an Acdtrux option, but I have no idea what each letter means. I use the -j option in tar for a .bz2 file. Then, I'm told to use the Acdtrux option.

So far my command looks like this: tar -j file.tar.bz2

I tried doing diff. letters, but it just stops and doesn't do anything.

Thanks for helping me.

I'm not sure if I understand your question, but to extract a .tar.bz2 file, you have 2 choices:

1. tar xfvj your_file.tar.bz2

or

2. bunzip2 your_file.tar.bz2
tar xfv your_file.tar.bz2
