🔸 Description In computing, tar is a computer software utility for collecting many files into one archive file, often referred to as a tarball, for distribution or backup purposes. The data sets created by tar contain various file system parameters, such as timestamps, ownership, file access permissions, and directory organization. ZIP is an archive file format that supports lossless data compression. A .zip file may contain one or more files or directories that may have been compressed. The .zip file format permits many compression algorithms, though DEFLATE is the most common.
🔸 Technical details A tar archive file contains uncompressed byte streams of the files which it contains. Various compression programs are available to archive compression, such as gzip, bzip2, xz, lzip, lzma, or compress, which compress the entire tar archive. ZIP files are archives that store multiple files.ZIP allows contained files to be compressed using many different methods and simply storing a file without compressing it. Instead, each file is stored separately, allowing different files in the same archive to be compressed using different methods.
