SYNOPSIS

par -c | -l | -x [-fhtvV] archive [file list]

DESCRIPTION

Par is an archiving program which processes pak files used by Quake and QuakeII. A pak archive contains only the file names -- together with the path below id1 (QuakeI) and baseq2 (Quake2) -- and the file data. Neither access permissions nor time stamps are stored.

ACTIONS

One of the following actions must be specified:
-c create a new archive
-l list the contents of the specified archive
-x extract files from the specified archive

OPTIONS

-f Force some actions, suppress error messages
-h Display some helpful information on stdout and exit successfully.
-t the files to process are specified in the files given by file list
-v be more talkative
-V Display version and compilation info on stdout and exit successfully.

RETURN VALUE

On success, 0 is returned. On error, a value >0 is returned.

ERRORS

1 a program bug has seen the light
2 the error is different from those explained above

EXAMPLES

Extract map base1.bsp from pak0.pak:
par -xv pak0.pak maps/base1.bsp
Create a list with the names of all maps from in pak0.pak:
par -l pak0.pak | grep .bsp > list
Extract the files specified in list:
par -xvt pak0.pak list
Create a new archive from these maps:
par -cvt pak9.pak list
Replace pak0.pak by an empty archive :-)
par -cv pak0.pak
