Hey! Emacs! Yo! This is -*- Text -*- !!! This GNU tar 1.11.2. Please send bug reports, etc., to firstname.lastname@example.org. This is a beta-test release. Please try it out. There is no manual; the release of version 1.12 will contain a manual. GNU tar is based heavily on John Gilmore's public domain tar, but with added features. The manual is currently being written. This distribution also includes rmt, the remote tape server (which normally must reside in /etc). The mt tape drive control program is in the GNU cpio distribution. See the file INSTALL for compilation and installation instructions for Unix. See the file NEWS for information on all that is new in this version of tar. makefile.pc is a makefile for Turbo C 2.0 on MS-DOS. Various people have been having problems using floppies on a NeXT. In order to have them work right, you need to kill the automounting program which tries to monut floppies as soon as they are added. If you want to do incremental dumps, use the distributed backup scripts. They are what we use at the FSF to do all our backups. Most importantly, do not use --incremental (-G) or --after-date (-N) or --newer-mtime to do incremental dumps. The only option that works correctly for this purpose is --listed-incremental. (When extracting incremental dumps, use --incremental (-G).) If your system needs to link with -lPW to get alloca, but has rename in the C library (so HAVE_RENAME is defined), -lPW might give you an incorrect version of rename. On HP-UX this manifests itself as an undefined data symbol called "Error" when linking cp, ln, and mv. If this happens, use `ar x' to extract alloca.o from libPW.a and `ar rc' to put it in a library liballoca.a, and put that in LIBS instead of -lPW. This problem does not occur when using gcc, which has alloca built in.
