DAR Publisher's description
from Denis Corbin
Backup your files with this tool.
dar is a shell command that backs up directory trees and files. It has been tested under Linux, Windows, Solaris, FreeBSD, NetBSD, MacOS X and several other systems, it is released under the GNU General Public License (GPL). Since version 2.0.0 an Application Interface (API) is available, opening the way for external/independent Graphical User Interfaces (GUIs) like kdar. This API relies on the libdar library, which is the core part of DAR programs; as such, the API is released under the GPL. Consequently, to use the API, your program must be released under the GPL as well.
What's New in This Release:Modified behavior of 'dar -h' and 'dar -V', both now return 0 as exist status instead of 1 (which means syntax error)
Fixed bug: Q is now available with -V under the collapsed form -QV or -VQ - fixed typo in documentation
Fixed memory leakage met when dar fails a merging operation because the resulting archive is specified in an directory that does not exist
Fixed bug met when isolating a differential backup in sequential read mode
Fixed bug about slice file permission not taking care about umask variable when the --hash feature is used
Fixed performance issue when reading an archive over a pair of piles using dar_slave (possibly over ssh) when the archive makes use of escape marks and when no encryption is used
Added target "full-from-diff" in /etc/darrc default file
Aixed bug avoiding reading an truncated archive in direct access mode with the help of an external catalogue
New and better implementation of archive extraction in sequential read mode
Fixing bug (segfault) met when hitting CTRL-C while reading an archive in sequential mode
Fixing libdar.pc for pkg-config for the cflags given to external applications
Fixed memory allocation/desallocation mismatches (delete vs delete  ) concerning four vector of chars
Fixed error in logical expression leading a sanity test to be useless
System Requirements:No special requirements.
Program Release Status: Major Update
Program Install Support: Install and Uninstall
