NAME
       pak - The QuakeForge Packfile Tool

SYNOPSIS
       pak <command> [options] ARCHIVE FILE...

DESCRIPTION
       pak is a	utility	for managing pack (*.pak) archives. The	format used is
       compatible with Quake and Quake II. Pak archives	are a  convenient  way
       to store	groups of related files. Some engines allow pak	archives to be
       compressed internally.

COMMANDS
       pak accepts the following arguments as a	command. Only one command  may
       be used at a time.

       -c, --create
	      Create  an archive. Overwrites any contents the archive may have
	      had.

       -t, --test
	      Test an archive for valid	formatting.

       -x, --extract
	      Extract an archive. Overwrites any files in the  current	direc-
	      tory with	the same names as those	inside the archive.

       -h, --help
	      Show summary of options.

       -V, --version
	      Show the version of pak.

OPTIONS
       pak takes the following arguments as options.

       -f, --file ARCHIVE
	      Use  ARCHIVE  as the archive filename, instead of	the first non-
	      option argument.	This option is provided	for compatibility with
	      older versions of	pak.

       -p, --pad
	      Can  be useful when creating an archive. File space is padded to
	      a	4-byte boundary, assisting in the speed	of loading files  from
	      the archive. The file data itself	is not changed.

       -q, --quiet
	      Inhibit some of pak's normal output.

       -v, --verbose
	      Display more output than usual.

EXIT STATUS
       pak returns a zero exit status when it has completed a command success-
       fully (without error). Otherwise, it returns a non-zero exit status.

BUGS
       The program does	not currently  handle  compression  or	decompression.
       This is planned for a future version.

       The  program  does  not currently handle	extraction of individual files
       inside an archive. This is planned for a	future version.

       The program cannot modify an archive once it has	been created.

AUTHORS
       Bill Currie (taniwha@quakeforge.net) wrote most of the program.

       Jeff Teunissen (deek@quakeforge.net) wrote the  command-line  interface
       and the documentation.
