HELP WITH TAR

Post by Mr. S. Car » Sat, 10 Dec 1994 00:38:14



I am trying to transfer files from a sun to my amiga A1200, and some of the
files are greater than 720k, last week somebody gave out instructions about
how to use TAR and gtar to do this.

Does anybody still have them as my system crashed when this was supposed to be
printing.

Does anybody have any other suggestions???

Cheers in advance

Simon

I went through that tar thing and found out all you need to do
is use "split".  split -b 720000 filename  will split a binary
file into as many 720k chunks as you need.
