BUNDLE(1)                                               BUNDLE(1)

     NAME
          bundle - collect files for distribution

     SYNOPSIS
          bundle file ...

     DESCRIPTION
          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 9ar (see
          9c(1)) or tar(1), a bundle file is self-documenting and com-
          plete; little preparation is required on the receiving
          machine.

     EXAMPLES
          bundle mkfile *.[ch] | mail kremvax!boris
               Send a makefile to Boris together with related `.c' and
               `.h' files.  Upon receiving the mail, Boris may save
               the file sans postmark, say in gift/horse, then do

          cd gift; sh horse; mk

     SOURCE
          /bin/bundle

     SEE ALSO
          9ar (in 9c(1)), tar(1), mail(1)

     BUGS
          Bundle will not create directories and is unsatisfactory for
          non-text files.

          Beware of gift horses.
