Reads files from the arc archive srcarc and add them to the
arc archive tgtarc.
Arc has been in use in the CP/M and MSDOS world for many years.
Thom Henderson developed the original version, but it is important to note that
arc is based on the file compression theories developed by Huffman, Welch,
Knott, Knuth, and many other scientists. This implementation is based on
version 5.21 of the MSDOS program.
Arc behaves just like the PC version of the program; all functions
of the "usage" display are working.
Full compatibility with PC ARC files is maintained, the price for which is
that arc doesn't like long filenames, and can only archive files with
names of up to 12 characters.
It will *sometimes* do The Right Thing with them, but I suggest
you put long-winded filenames in a "shar" before
There shouldn't be any problems, (hah!) but if you find any, please
send them to me at:
