What is tgz file?

Unix .TAR file archive compressed with Gnu Zip (.GZIP) compression; the TAR file archives multiple files into one file and the Gzip compression reduces the archive file size. To decompress a TGZ file from a Unix command line: First type \\\\\\\"gunzip filename.tar.gz\\\\\\\" and press Enter. This decompresses the archive. Then type \\\\\\\"tar -xf packed_files.tar\\\\\\\" and press Enter. This decodes the TAR archive and makes the the files readable. NOTE: TGZ files are commonly used as install packages for Slackware Linux.
