Debian:
apt-get install tob

Requirements:

tob uses a separate archiver to do its work. The stock, recommended, configuration uses 'afio'. We suggestion at least afio 2.4.8.

Other archivers that are known to work include tar and arj; please see the sample-rc directory for examples.

You also need bash, sed, and other standard Unix tools.
