For quite some time we have this question: How to de-unzip, de-tar -xvf — de-unarchive in a messy folder?
Yesterday in quite a panic I asked this question: Clean up / after accidentally extracting archive into it?
The main difference is, I run the "de-unzip" as root, which is more stupid and need some special considerations. Apart from that the two questions are the same.
Now is that enough to keep them as two questions? Or should I delete mine? Or should we merge?
