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.
