BUNDLE(1) BUNDLE(1) NAME bundle - collect files for distribution SYNOPSIS bundle files DESCRIPTION Bundle writes on its standard output a shell (sh(1)) file that, 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 archive from ar(1), cpio(1), or tar(1), a bundle file is self-documenting and complete; little preparation is required on the receiving machine. EXAMPLES bundle makefile *.[ch] | mail elsewhere!mark Send mark a makefile with related `.c' and `.h' files. Upon receving the mail, mark may save the file, in `gift/horse' for example, edit out the postmark, then do cd gift; sh horse; make SEE ALSO ar(1), cpio(1), tar(1), mail(1) BUGS Bundle will not create directories and is unsatisfactory for non-ASCII files. Beware of gift horses.
