bundle - collect files for distribution
bundle file ...
Bundle writes on its standard output a shell script for rc(1) or a Bourne shell which,
when executed, will recreate the original files. Its main use is for distributing small
numbers of text files by mail(1).
Although less refined than standard archives from ar(1) or tar(1), a bundle file is self-
documenting and complete; little preparation is required on the receiving machine.
bundle mkfile *.[ch] | mail kremvax!boris
Send a makefile to Boris together with related and files. Upon receiving the mail,
Boris may save the file sans postmark, say in gift/horse, then do
cd gift; rc horse; mk
ar(1), tar(1), mail(1)
Bundle will not create directories and is unsatisfactory for non-text files.
Beware of gift horses.
