Tar - Working with shell-2

Any suggestions?

Hello @jyothy18

if you want to keep the slashes in front of the file names, the option you need is
-P or --absolute-names option
tar -cfP /home/bob/python.tar /home/bob/reptile/snake/python Or tar -cf /home/bob/python.tar --absolute-names /home/bob/reptile/snake/python
Hope this helps
