Port details
gtar 1.27 archivers on this many watch lists=146 search for ports that depend on this port An older version of this port was marked as vulnerable.
GNU version of the traditional tape archiver
Maintained by: naddy@FreeBSD.org search for ports maintained by this maintainer
Port Added: 08 Feb 2001 14:31:26
Also Listed In: sysutils
License: GPLv3


The Free Software Foundation's "tar" tape archiver.

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.
This distribution also includes rmt, the remote tape server.

Note that this port will install these utilities with a 'g' prefix,
e.g. gtar, but the texinfo documentation will refer to them without
the 'g' prefix.

- Set --mandir and --infodir in CONFIGURE_ARGS if the configure script
  supports them.  This is determined by running ``configure --help'' in
  do-configure target and set the shell variable _LATE_CONFIGURE_ARGS
  which is then passed to CONFIGURE_ARGS.
- Remove --mandir and --infodir in ports' Makefile where applicable
  Few ports use REINPLACE_CMD to achieve the same effect, remove them too.
- Correct some manual pages location from PREFIX/man to MANPREFIX/man
- Define INFO_PATH where necessary
- Document that .info files are installed in a subdirectory relative to
  PREFIX/INFO_PATH and slightly change add-plist-info to use INFO_PATH and
  subdirectory detection.
