Project ID: 28606

Description

A tool to multiplex and demultiplex streams from pipes to tar and back again.

Tarmux attempts to solve the problem of handling streamed data where there is insufficient temporary space on disk to hold the data, as is forced by tar.

Installation Instructions

In the simplest invocation, tarmux takes a stream from stdin, and creates a tar file consisting of sequential numbered file fragments one after the other. This can be reversed by the tardemux tool, which will untar the fragments and reassemble the stream to stdout.

The tardemux tool only reads a single tar stream before exiting. This allows multiple streams to be concatenated in the same stream, and then split out by each invocation of tardemux.

Note: When compressing a tarmux stream, compress each individual component of the stream separately and tarmux the result. If you do the inverse and compress the tarmux the decompression will be greedy and force tarmux to be greedy too. This is not a bug.

Man pages and instructions for tarmux and tardemux are included in the package.

A basic example of tarmux in action is provided here: https://github.com/minfrin/tarmux
