DAR is a command line tool to backup a directory tree and files. DAR is
able to make differential backups, split them over a set of disks or files
of a given size, use compression, filter files or subtrees to be saved or
not saved, directly access and restore given files. DAR is also able
to handle extented attributes, and can make remote backups through an
ssh session for example. Finally, DAR handles save and restore of hard
and symbolic links.
Due to fedora policy and the apparent inability of the current version of
glibc to compile a true static binary, the dar-static package/binaries have
not been built or included with this package. If you would like to build
static binaries, you can download the source RPM file from the Fedora Extras
repository and recompile it with "--with static" to enable the static binary
and library files.
