❔ What is a tar.xz file?

answer
A tar.xz file is basically two files wrapped into one. The first one is a tar file (sometimes referred to as a tarball), a collection of files & folders wrapped into a single package. The tar file then gets compressed into a xz file, utilising the LZMA2 compression algorithm.

The file format is commonly used for backing up and distributing files and software packages in unix/linux environments. Its a newer version of the of tar.gz format.

A .txz file is the same but with a different file extension.
