tar for gzip/bzip2

Hello All,

You don't need to use gunzip nor bunzip2 before extracting tar file.
The j/z option will automatically gunzip/bunzip2 to extract.

Add "j" option to extract bzip2 compressed tar file.
   tar jxvf lir00-56.tbz
   tar jxvf lir00-56.tbz2
   tar jxvf lir00-56.tar.bz
   tar jxvf lir00-56.tar.bz2
Add "z" option to extract gzip compressed tar file.
   tar zxvf lir00-56.tgz
   tar zxvf lir00-56.tar.gz
