mxtar

Wrapper for using GNU tar directly from a floppy disk

mxtar [ - ] [ tar-options ] file

mxtar let you use GNU tar(1) on a floppy disk without mounting it using mtools(1). It is not strictly necessary on Debian GNU/Linux, because the GNU tar(1) program provides the same capability after copying the file locally with

mcopy file destination

but this utility is provided in the mtools package for other platforms and is retained here for completeness.

Luis Bustamante <luferbu@fluidsignal.com> wrote this page for the Debian/GNU mtools package.
