Hello, My product uses hfstar and some work has been done on it to improve reliability and also get around certain bugs within both GNUtar 1.13.19 and also the hfstar-specific enhancements made to it. The hfstar now being used is based on version 1.14 of GNUtar, which fixes a lot of underlying problems, but also there are further fixes and enhancements: - when archiving to /dev/null, a bug in the file permissions checking is fixed - now group file access is checked against all the groups the user belongs to. - all files are accessed using the F_NOCACHE option, this stops OS X application performance being reduced by them being paged out. This can slightly reduce the performance of hfstar - basename.c has been corrected to calculate the base name of a resource fork path correctly, i.e. the base name of /Users/fred/image.jpg/..namedfork/rsrc is not "rsrc". - a new (at present hidden) option of --flat-files has been added, to allow all files to be extracted into the same directory, losing their relative position. - a bug which stopped files which were not writable having their HFS attributes set after being created has been fixed. - numerous other improvements and fixes.

Compiles and installs easily with "./configure; make; make install" as expected. Invoke as hfstar (from /usr/local/bin). Needs developer tools to install (obviously). After a quick test, works otherwise as tar does PLUS keeps bundled icons i.e. supports resource forks. I tested it with "hfstar c Pictures | ssh 10.0.1.2 ./hfstar xv" which is what I needed it for. Very good.
