Package description for 'afio'

archiver - similar to cpio

 Afio makes cpio-format archives. It deals somewhat gracefully with
 input data corruption, supports multi-volume archives during interactive
 operation, and can make compressed archives that are much safer than
 compressed tar or cpio archives. Afio is best used as an `archive engine'
 in a backup script.
