NAME

mxtar – Wrapper for using GNU tar directly from a floppy disk

SYNOPSIS

mxtar [ – ] [ tar-options ] file

DESCRIPTION

mxtar let you use GNU tar on a floppy disk without mounting it using
mtools. It is not strictly necessary on Debian GNU/Linux, because
the GNU tar 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.

AUTHOR
