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.

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.

Rewriting my own review since it's got unfortunate errors. Compiles and installs easily with "./configure; make; sudo make install" as expected. Invoke as tar (from /usr/local/bin). I chose to rename it to hfstar. Needs developer tools to be installed (obviously). After a quick test, works otherwise as tar does PLUS keeps bundled icons i.e. supports resource forks. I tested it with "hfstar cf - Pictures | ssh 10.0.1.2 hfstar xvf -" which is what I needed it for. Very good. Since that, I've been using hfstar with no problems at all. Just installed 1.14 just to keep up-to-date.
