./wip/tardy, Manipulate attributes of files within tar archives

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

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.17, Package name: tardy-1.17, Maintainer: MarkoSchuetz

The tardy program is a tar(1) post-processor.

It may be used to manipulate the file headers
in tar(5) archive files in various ways.

The reason the tardy program was written was because the author wanted to
"spruce up" tar files before posting them to the net, mostly to remove
artefacts of the development environment, without introducing more.

The tardy program was designed to allow you to alter certain
characteristics of files after they have been included in the tar
file. Among them are:

change file owner (by number or name)
change file group (by number or name)
add directory prefix (e.g. dot)
change file protections (e.g. from 600 to 644)

Note that all of these affect all files in the archive.
