Options are usually preceded by a hyphen, i.e. regular syntax would be
tar -cf filename
I remember from one textbook on Linux that GNU tar unklike other versions
does not need the hyphen so that tar cf filename works. Isn't it possible
that you have tar that requires hyphens? I had such tar in OS/2, now I
have GNU tar.
