The command is normally used by sysadmins to copy (uproot) an entire
directory tree under the current directory to a different location.
For example, to copy all files (and directories) from /usr/src
to /usr/local/src, you would do:
(cd /usr/src && tar -cf - .) | (cd /usr/local/src && tar -xvpf -)
Commands executed between () parantheses are executed within a sub-shell
(so that they don't change the path for the current shell).
