    Hi Charles.

    There's a patch to the tar source that allows a variant of this by
    specifying Z instead of z and the standard version of tar can be used
    by specifying the following...

    Q> tar -xv --use-compress-program bzip2 -f foo.tar.bz2

    Does that help?

    Best wishes from Riley.
