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.
