tarwc - a wrapper around tar(1) that supports wildcards

DESCRIPTION

    tarwc is a wrapper for tar(1) that modifies the t and x
    commands to take wildcard patterns as arguments instead of
    file names.
    
    For example, to list all the files ending in .c in a
    tarball, you could use :

	$ tarwc -tzf foo.tar.gz "*.c"

    Likewise, to extract all the files named README :

	$ tarwc -xzf foo.tar.gz "*/README"

    You need a cpio(1) command that can read tar archives. GNU
    cpio does, others probably don't.

BUILDING AND INSTALLING

    To compile :

	$ make

    To install in /usr/local :

	# make install

    To install /somewhere/else :

	$ make PREFIX=/somewhere/else install
