shar and unshar for SGI? Paul Raines 3/16/93 1:00 PM
Can some one point me to a shar and unshar program
that runs on a SGI.  The one I found seems to be
very BSD specific and craps out on piping.
Thanks.

You want Rich Salz's 'cshar', v2.3, found in volume 15 of your local
comp.sources.unix archive. Be sure to get all the patches.

Cheers,

I prefer shar-3.49 to cshar. It runs on SYSV.

You can find it
phloem.uoregon.edu:/pub/src/
iros1.iro.umontreal.ca:/pub/Internet/
or other anonymous-ftp sites in the world.

Shar-3.49 may split files automatically if you specify a limit
of output file size, while cshar v2.3 not (I think).

The 'makekit' part of cshar handles splitting and kit-building. Apparently
shar-3.49 does things with uuen/decode that cshar doesn't, though.
