How do u like this man page? It's used in devel and FC4.
Comment 3 Robert Berlinger 2005-09-07 09:38:22 EDT
It points one to the "info tar" (I didn't know about that) and explains why 
it's not a complete description of GNU tar.  Good job!

Caught one typo -- "has since been loving updated" -- "loving" should 
be "lovingly.
