tar: The GNU Tape ARchiver program1

Package available in: [trunk] [8.0] [7.0] [6.0] [2.1]

GNU 'tar' saves many files together into a single tape or disk archive, and can restore individual files from the archive. It includes multivolume support, the ability to archive sparse files, automatic archive compression/decompression, remote archives and special features that allow 'tar' to be used for incremental and full backups.
