1. if diff -q 1.tgz 2.tgz

2. Extracting .tgz file while preserving the .tgz file

Dear All,

I usually extract a .tgz file using the following tar command.

tar -zxvf foo.tgz

However, this would delete foo.tgz file.
Is there a way to preserve the foo.tgz file?

I tried -Pzxvf and it seemed to work, but -P is for the following (from man

-P, --absolute-names
don strip leading from file names

Am I doing it right?
Is there another way?

Thank you,

3. Any zip or tgz that decompress to itself ?
