WHAT IS IN THAT PACKAGE ?


Here is a short one:
We can see what is in a package ( rpm or tar.gz or tgz ) , with the following command:

CODE
$ less /home/bruno/downloads/package.tar.gz

( replace ¨package.tar.gz¨ with the name of the file )

We will do more tricks with the command ¨less¨ another time !
