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.
