Tar-compatible archiver

Btar is a tar-compatible archiver which allows arbitrary compression and ciphering, redundancy, differential backup, indexed extraction, multicore compression, input and output serialisation, and tolerance to partial archive errors.


Install the latest version of btar as follows:

guix install btar

Or install a particular version:

guix install btar@1.1.1

You can also install packages in augmented, pure or containerized environments for development or simply to try them out without polluting your user profile. See the guix shell documentation for more information.
