SHAR(1) 			   BSD General Commands Manual				  SHAR(1)

NAME
     shar -- create a shell archive of files

SYNOPSIS
     shar file ...

DESCRIPTION
     shar writes an sh(1) shell script to the standard output which will recreate the file hier-
     archy specified by the command line operands.  Directories will be recreated and must be
     specified before the files they contain (the find(1) utility does this correctly).

     shar is normally used for distributing files by ftp(1) or mail(1).

SEE ALSO
     compress(1), mail(1), uuencode(1), tar(1)

BUGS
     shar makes no provisions for special types of files or files containing magic characters.

EXAMPLES
     To create a shell archive of the program ls(1) and mail it to Rick:

	   cd ls
	   shar `find . -print` |  mail -s "ls source" rick

     To recreate the program directory:

	   mkdir ls
	   cd ls
	   ...
	   <delete header lines and examine mailed archive>
	   ...
	   sh archive

HISTORY
     The shar command appears in 4.4BSD.

SECURITY CONSIDERATIONS
     It is easy to insert trojan horses into shar files.  It is strongly recommended that all
     shell archive files be examined before running them through sh(1).  Archives produced using
     this implementation of shar may be easily examined with the command:

	   egrep -v '^[X#]' shar.file
