and asI'm easily confused, and learned tar first I
tar clC <wherever> | tar xpC <wherever>

and if I have buffer installed I insert that into the line
tar .. | buffer -p 75 | tar ...

and if source and destination are on different computers, one or both tars can 
be prefixed with an ssh command.

Depending on circumstances you may wish to use compression too.
