       amarchiver - Create, extract or list amanda archive


       amarchiver --version|--create|--extract|--list [--verbose] [--file file] [filename]...


       Amarchiver manipulates amanda archive file. On creation, amarchiver doesn't recurse into
       directories. If a filename specifies a directory, it will be ignored. If it specifies a
       character device, amarchiver reads the device and archives the data. If a filename
       specifies a named pipe, amarchiver reads the named pipe and archives the data.

       Note that this tool is more limited than the Amanda archive library, and may not be
       appropriate for some archive files -- particularly those which use non-strings in their

           Create an amanda archive. Only the supplied filenames are included. With one
           --verbose, lists the filenames. With two, lists the filenames and sizes.

           List the filenames in an amanda archive. No additional filenames are allowed on the
           command line.

           Extract an amanda archive. If filenames are supplied, only those files are extracted.
           Files are created in the current directory, suffixed with a dot ('.') and the
           attribute ID.

           Give more information.
