PRESENTATION
================
dar is a shell command, that makes backup of a directory tree and files.
It has been tested under Linux, Windows (95, 2000, NT, XP, 7, 8, 10),
OpenSolaris, FreeBSD and NetBSD, and has been reported as working under
Mac OS X 10.3 and more recent (where it takes care of file forks but not
of the ACL).

Actually dar is a set of six commands over libdar library:
        dar
        dar_xform
        dar_slave
        dar_manager
        dar_cp
	dar_split

with in addition:
        dar_static (statically linked version of dar, not all system
	            support static linking)
