Download, Uncompress, and Untar a File

Just wanted to write this little shell code snippet down because I've been using it quite a bit. It downloads, ungzips, and untars a file without saving it using "wget": wget -O - | tar xvz Or, if you're Mac Like Me, you'd use "curl": curl | tar xvz Beats having all those .tar.gz files laying around like dirty kleenex.
