Subject Re: 100 character tar limit
Date Wed, 31 Jan 2001 14:26:48 GMT
I BELIEVE this gets around the limits, but it's been
a while. Try some experiements on the tree to see what happens...

Make the file this way:

   find . -depth -print | cpio -o | compress -c > ${file_name}.Z

Uncompress it this way:

  cat ${file_name}.Z  | uncompress -c | cpio -id 2>/dev/null
