       amarchiver - Create, extract or list amanda archive

       amarchiver --version|--create|--extract|--list [--verbose]
		  [--file file] [filename]...

       Amarchiver manipulates amanda archive file. On creation, amarchiver
       doesn´t recurse into directories. If a filename specifies a directory,
       it will be ignored. If it specifies a character device, amarchiver
       reads the device and archives the data. If a filename specifies a named
       pipe, amarchiver reads the named pipe and archives the data.

       Note that this tool is more limited than the Amanda archive library,
       and may not be appropriate for some archive files -- particularly those
       which use non-strings in their filenames.

	   List the filenames in an amanda archive. No additional filenames
	   are allowed on the command line.

	   Extract an amanda archive. If filenames are supplied, only those
	   files are extracted. Files are created in the current directory,
	   suffixed with a dot (´.´) and the attribute ID.
