No. I'll copy the file/directory to some other place and edit them
there.  After finish I repack them back to the tarball replacing the
old file/directory, not directly editing them inside the tarball.  That
was what I did on other compression software.

That is the GUI operation of Ark.  What about its operation on command
lines.  I'm interested to learn some more.  Please shed me some light
in this respect.  TIA
