htar: Command-line tar archive utility.

[ bsd3, codec, program ] [ Propose Tags ]

A Command-line utility to create, extract and list the contents of tar archives. It can work with compressed archives using gzip or bzip2 compression.

This is in part a demo of the tar library but it is also usable in place of the ordinary tar program for systems like Windows that do not come with it as standard.
