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

NAME
       suntar -	create tape archives and add or	extract	files

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 informa-
	      tion, see	star(1).

       -/     don't strip leading '/'s from file names

       --..   don't  skip  filenames  that contain '..'	in non-interactive ex-
	      tract

       --7z   run the input or output through a	p7zip pipe - see option	-z be-
	      low.

	      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
	       print timing info

       --no-statistics
	      do not print statistics

       --do-statistics
	      rint statistics

       --fifostats
	      print fifo statistics

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

       --numeric
	      don't use	user/group name	from tape

       --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).

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
