tarsplit, tarcat – split a tar archive into archives under some
size, or combine archives|
tarsplit [ –p prefix ] [ –s size ] [ file ... ] |
tarcat [ file ... ]
Tarsplit copies a tar(1) archive from input file(s) into a series
of independent tar archives with names starting with prefix (ts.
by default) and no larger than a fixed size (512MB by default).
This can be useful when copying large archives onto fixed–size
storage media such as CDs or DVDs. |
Tarsplit prints a list on standard output of the resulting archive names, and the first and last member names in each, to assist finding particular members without recombining the archives.
Tarcat copies tar(1) archives from input files and combines them
into a single tar archive. It is the inverse of tarsplit.
Archive /adm and split the result.|
