changing file names as read from tar

Post by buxd.. » Sat, 28 May 1994 23:27:51



I want to remove files from a tar archive and change the        
names as I go.  Essentially I want to change the names                
into dos format as the files are taken off the tape.                  
Cropping the file name to 8.3 characters is acceptable                

Any Ideas ?
