./archivers/gzrecover, GZip Recovery Toolkit

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 0.8, Package name: gzrecover-0.8, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

So you thought you had your files backed up onto that jaz cartridge -
until it came time to restore. Then you found out that you had bad
sectors and you've lost almost everything because gzip craps out 10%
of the way through your archive. The gzip Recovery Toolkit has a program
- gzrecover - that attempts to skip over bad data in a gzip archive and
to GNU tar that enables that program to skip over bad data and extract
whatever files might be there.

As a side-effect of migrating the homepages, pkglint also fixed a few
indentations in unrelated lines. These and the new homepages have been
checked manually.
