ptargrep - Apply pattern matching to the contents of files in a tar archive SYNOPSIS
ptargrep [options] <pattern> <tar file> ... Options: --basename|-b ignore directory paths from archive --ignore-case|-i do case-insensitive pattern matching --list-only|-l list matching filenames rather than extracting matches --verbose|-v write debugging message to STDERR --help|-? detailed help message DESCRIPTION
This utility allows you to apply pattern matching to the contents of files contained in a tar archive. You might use this to identify all files in an archive which contain lines matching the specified pattern and either print out the pathnames or extract the files. The pattern will be used as a Perl regular expression (as opposed to a simple grep regex). Multiple tar archive filenames can be specified - they will each be processed in turn. OPTIONS
--basename (alias -b) When matching files are extracted, ignore the directory path from the archive and write to the current directory using the basename of the file from the archive. Beware: if two matching files in the archive have the same basename, the second file extracted will overwrite the first. --ignore-case (alias -i) Make pattern matching case-insensitive. --list-only (alias -l) Print the pathname of each matching file from the archive to STDOUT. Without this option, the default behaviour is to extract each matching file. --verbose (alias -v) Log debugging info to STDERR. --help (alias -?) Display this documentation. COPYRIGHT

dlb - NetHack data librarian SYNOPSIS
dlb { xct } [ vfIC ] arguments... [ files... ] DESCRIPTION
Dlb is a file archiving tool in the spirit (and tradition) of tar for NetHack version 3.1 and higher. It is used to maintain the archive files from which NetHack reads special level files and other read-only information. Note that like tar the command and option specifiers are specified as a continuous string and are followed by any arguments required in the same order as the option specifiers. This facility is optional and may be excluded during NetHack configuration. COMMANDS
The x command causes dlb to extract the contents of the archive into the current directory. The c command causes dlb to create a new archive from files in the current directory. The t command lists the files in the archive. OPTIONS AND ARGUMENTS
v verbose output f archive specify the archive. Default if f not specified is LIBFILE (usually the nhdat file in the playground). I lfile specify the file containing the list of files to put in to or extract from the archive if no files are listed on the command line. Default for archive creation if no files are listed is LIBLISTFILE. C dir change directory. Changes directory before trying to read any files (including the archive and the lfile). EXAMPLES
Create the default archive from the default file list: dlb c List the contents of the archive 'foo': dlb tf foo AUTHOR

Not a good tar emulation; - does not mean stdin or stdout. Should include an optional compression facility. Not all read-only files for NetHack can be read out of an archive; examining the source is the only way to know which files can be. 4th Berkeley Distribution 28 Oct 1993 DLB(6)
