NAME ^

par - create a Perl archive of files

SYNOPSIS ^

par [-s submitter] [-STBqvz] file [files...]

DESCRIPTION ^

par creates a Perl archive of the files on the command line. The Perl archive is a Perl script, and executing it will recreate the files. If any of the files include a path, directories in that path will also be recreated. If any of the files is a directory, the contents of that directory will be archived.

OPTIONS ^

par automatically determines if files are text or binary unless -B or -T is used.

-B

All files are binary. Encode files with uuencode. uudecode will be required to recover the files.

-S

Read standard input for files, one file per line, as though they were included on the command line. For example:

    find . -name 'chapter[1-9].txt' -print | par -S > story.par
-T

All files are text. No encoding necessary.

-s submitter

Use submitter for the email address included in the par header.

-q

Shhh!

-v

Print version info and exit.

-z

Mimic shar. Create a shell archive instead of a Perl archive.

NOTES ^

Renaming or linking par to shar will cause it to create shell scripts:

    ln par shar
    shar moogle.txt > moogle.shar

SEE ALSO ^

shar, unpar, uuencode
