S tar 1.5.2 / 1.5.3 Alpha 1
The most POSIX compliant and fastest known implementation of a tar archiver on Linux
S tar includes a FIFO for speed, multivolume support, a pattern matcher, the ability to archive sparse files, automatic byte order recognition, automatic archive format detection, automatic archive compression and decompression, remote archiving, as well as other special functionality that allows the application to be used for full system backups.
S tar also includes `rmt', a truly portable version of the remote tape server that supports remote operation between different operating systems and machine architectures, as well as a portable `mt' tape drive control program.
S tar is the fastest known implementation of a tar archiver, even faster than ufsdump in nearly all cases.
