NAME

       mxtar - Wrapper for using GNU tar directly from a floppy disk

SYNOPSIS

       mxtar [ - ] [ tar-options ] file

DESCRIPTION

       mxtar  let you use GNU tar(1) on a floppy disk without mounting it using mtools(1).  It is
       not strictly necessary on Debian GNU/Linux, because the GNU tar(1)  program  provides  the
       same capability after copying the file locally with

       mcopy file destination

       but  this  utility  is  provided in the mtools package for other platforms and is retained
       here for completeness.

       package.
