Tarlisted 2.2 reviewDownload
Tarlisted project takes lines of text as an input and creates tar archive based on that information
Tarlisted project takes lines of text as an input and creates tar archive based on that information.
Each line contains permission, user, group and pathname that are to be written in header part of the tar entry. In addition to that, at the end of line the syntax varies depending the file type archived.
For example in case of reqular files the filename where file content is read is added. Tarlisted creates POSIX.1-1998 tar file format (only) and can archive all the (seven) file types it supports.
-n: Just check tarlist contents, not doing anything else.
-V: Verbose output.
-i and -o: defines input and output files, instead of stdin/stdout.
The default mode is to act as a filter; take description file from stdin and write to stdout. This is the most common usage; some script provides the content and output is filtered, either to gzip/bzip2 or to tar command to be extract elsewhere (even to inside chroot...).
What's New in This Release:
This release adds the options -z and -j. It makes -o mandatory if '|' is not used. tarlisted.1 and Makefile have been updated to match features.
An ugly bug in tarlisted option handling has been fixed.
