Thanks, but this is exactly the case that introduces subtle problems.
It doesn't help if there is another file in the archive, with the same
name but in a different directory.
mkdir -p dir
echo member1 > member1
echo member2 > member2
echo "member1 in directory" > dir/member1
gnutar cf test.tar member1 member2 dir
gnutar xOf test.tar --wildcards --no-anchored member1 > member1-extracted
There exists no general way to extract precisely the root member1,
which at the same time supports archives with "./member1" path.
We can tailor a command line to a specific archive, but this doesn't
solve the general case.
