    Another useful example – download and extract archive to specific directory
    wget -q -O - http://wordpress.org/latest.tar.gz | tar -xzf - --strip 1 -C /path/to

      Pradeep should include this in his examples, as this was the exact one I was looking for. I noticed something was running on our system under wget -qO- -O and I couldn’t figure out if this was a typo or what, so thanks for clearing it up for me. Took a lot from this, just wish it was more expansive!
