A tar file is an archive of files that you create on a UNIX or Linux system. The folder and file structure in the archive mirrors the structure of the source files. Use the tar_teradata_client_packages script on the Teradata Tools and Utilities installation media to create a compressed archive of Teradata Tools and Utilities client packages for a specific platform or operating system from the installation media. You can also compress the tar file. A compressed tar file is like a zip, 7z, rar, or cab file on a Windows system.

You can build the tar file to contain all of the packages for a specified platform, or all the files for a specified package. It also includes all of the required dependencies for the selected packages.
