How to Extract .gz File in Linux Command Easly and Quickly

Gzip reduces the size of the named files using Lempel-Ziv coding (LZ77).  Whenever possible, each file is replaced by one with the extension .gz, while keeping the same ownership modes, access and modification times.  (The default extension is -gz for VMS, z for MSDOS, OS/2  FAT,  Windows  NT  FAT  and Atari.) If no files are specified, or if a file name is "-", the standard input is compressed to the standard output. Gzip will only attempt to compress regular files.  In particular, it will ignore symbolic links.


# gunzip archive.gz

Compressed files can be restored to their original form using gzip -d or gunzip or zcat.  If the original name saved in  the  compressed  file  is  not suitable for its file system, a new name is constructed from the original one to make it legal.


By default, gzip keeps the original file name and timestamp in the compressed file. These are used when decompressing the file with the -N option. This is useful when the compressed file name was truncated or when the time stamp was not preserved after a file transfer.
