NAME

       marc - archive merger

SYNOPSIS

       marc tgtarc srcarc [ files ... ]

DESCRIPTION

       Reads files from the arc archive srcarc and add them to the arc archive tgtarc.

HISTORY

       Arc  has been in use in the CP/M and MSDOS world for many years.  Thom Henderson developed
       the original version, but it  is  important  to  note  that  arc  is  based  on  the  file
       compression theories developed by Huffman, Welch, Knott, Knuth, and many other scientists.
       This implementation is based on version 5.21 of the MSDOS program.

BUGS

       Arc behaves just like the PC version of the program; all functions of the "usage"  display
       are  working.   Full compatibility with PC ARC files is maintained, the price for which is
       that arc doesn't like long filenames, and can only archive files with names of  up  to  12
       characters.  It will *sometimes* do The Right Thing with them, but I suggest you put long-
       winded filenames in a "shar" before arcing them.

       There shouldn't be any problems, (hah!) but if you find any, please send them to me at:
