Useful 'flar' Options and Flags (taken from the Solaris 10 'flar' manpage)

-a author author is used to provide an author name
for the archive identification section of
the new flash archive. If you do not
specify -a, no author name is included in
the identification section.

-c Compress the archive using compress(1)


-x exclude ... Exclude the file or directory exclude
from the archive. Note that the exclude
file or directory is assumed to be rela-
tive to the alternate root specified
using -R. If the parent directory of the
file exclude is included with the -y
option (see -y include), then only the
specific file or directory specified by
exclude is excluded. Conversely, if the
parent directory of an included file is
specified for exclusion, then only the
file include is included. For example, if
you specify:

-x /a -y /a/b

all of /a except for /a/b is excluded. If
you specify:

-y /a -x /a/b

all of /a except for /a/b is included.


-y include ... Include the file or directory include in
the archive. Note that the exclude file
or directory is assumed to be relative to
the alternate root specified using -R.
See the description of the -x option,
above, for a description of the interac-
tion of the -x and -y options.
