NAME

       pacoball - Binary package support for paco(8).

SYNOPSIS

       pacoball [-bgftv] [-d DIR] [-1..9] [-a|<packages>]
       pacoball -e [-ltv] [-C DIR] <pacoballs>

DESCRIPTION

       By  default, pacoball may be given one or more package names as arguments, and for each of
       those packages it creates a binary  tarball  (.tar.bz2  or  .tar.gz)  containing  all  the
       currently  installed  files.  For this to work the input packages have to be registered in
       the paco database.
       Leading slashes ('/') are stripped from the paths of the files in the tarballs.

       With option -e, pacoball admits one or more previously created tarballs  ("pacoballs")  as
       arguments,  and  installs  them  into the system, optionally logging the installation with
       paco.

       Mandatory arguments to long options are mandatory for short options too.

GENERAL OPTIONS

       -t, --test
              Test compressed file integrity.

       -h, --help
              Show usage information and exit.

       -v, --verbose
              Verbose output.

       -V, --version
              Display version information and exit.

       -d, --directory=DIR

       -g, --gzip
              Compress with gzip.

       -#     Set the compression level (speed/quality  balance).  '#'  is  a  number  between  1
              (faster compression) and 9 (best compression).

              the name of the pacoball.
