SYNOPSIS

suntar command [ options ] file1 ... filen

DESCRIPTION

This manual page documents an emulation of the Sun version of tar. It has been implemented on top of the star program.

For a description of the Sun tar program check the Sun tar manual page.

OPTIONS

Star supports the Sun tar options.

EXTENDED OPTIONS

The extended options are options taken from star.
--help Prints a summary of the most important options for suntar(1) and exits.
--xhelp Prints a summary of the less important options for suntar(1) and exits.
--version
  Prints the suntar version number string and exists.
--debug print additional debug messages
xdebug=#
xd=#
  set extended debug level
artype=headertype
  Generate a tape archive in headertype format. For more information, see star(1) .
-/ don’t strip leading ’/’s from file names
--.. don’t skip filenames that contain ’..’ in non-interactive extract
--7z run the input or output through a p7zip pipe - see option -z below.

Note that the p7zip program currently does not operate on a pipe but on a /tmp file copy and thus limits the maximum archive size.

--acl handle access control lists
--xfflags
  handle extended file flags
bs=# set (output) block size to #
fs=# set fifo size to #
--no-fsync

--time print timing info
--no-statistics

--do-statistics

--fifostats

--no-fifo don’t use a fifo to optimize data flow from/to tape

--lzo pipe input/output through lzop, does not work on tapes
-z pipe input/output through gzip, does not work on tapes

The options above are not defined by Sun tar.

For a complete documentation of the star based optione check star(1).

DIAGNOSTICS

NOTES

This suntar implementation is based on the star implementation and does not implement all features of the original Sun tar program.

Suntar -x is equivalent to star -xU -force-remove -remove-first -keep-nonempty-dirs
