Most compressive dating software or script
Despite the utility's name, Tar can direct its output to available devices, files, or other programs (using pipes), it can even access remote devices or files (as archives).
Tar can be found on the main GNU ftp server: (via HTTP) and ftp://org/gnu/tar/ (via FTP).
Security reports that should not be made immediately public can be sent directly to the maintainer.
If there is no response to an urgent issue, you can escalate to the general security mailing list for advice.
This approach is simple and modular, but has the disadvantage that the model itself can be expensive to store, and also that it forces using a single model for all data being compressed, and so performs poorly on files that contain heterogeneous data.
Adaptive models dynamically update the model as the data is compressed.
Lossless compression is a class of data compression algorithms that allows the original data to be perfectly reconstructed from the compressed data.
Documentation for Tar is available online, as is documentation for most GNU software.
You may also find more information about Tar by running Announcements about Tar and most other GNU software are made on info-gnu (archive).
It can also be found on the GNU mirrors; please use a mirror if possible.
