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 sun-
          tar(1) and exits.

     --xhelp
          Prints a summary of the less important options for sun-
          tar(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

DIAGNOSTICS


NOTES

     This suntar implementation is based on the star  implementa-
     tion 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
