STUNAR(1) Schily´s USER COMMANDS STUNAR(1)

suntar - create tape archives and add or extract files

suntar  command [ options ] file1 ... filen

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.

Star supports the Sun tar 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.
--secure-links
don't extract links that start with '/' or contain '..'
--acl
handle access control lists
--xfflags
handle extended file flags
bs=#
set (output) block size to #
fs=#
set fifo size to #
--no-fsync
do not call fsync() for each extracted file (may be dangerous)
--time

--no-statistics

--do-statistics
rint statistics
--fifostats
print fifo statistics
--no-fifo
don't use a fifo to optimize data flow from/to tape
--numeric

--lzo
pipe input/output through lzop, does not work on tapes
-z
pipe input/output through gzip, does not work on tapes
--bz
pipe input/output through bzip2, 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).

spax(1), suntar(1), scpio(1), tar(1), cpio(1), pax(1), rcp(1), mt(1), rmt(1), match(1), dd(1), sdd(1), rsh(1), ssh(1), star(1), star(4/5), rcmd(3), fssnap(1m)

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
