cpio 2.13

Manage cpio and tar file archives

GNU cpio copies files into or out of cpio or tar archives. Indeed, many formats are supported, including legacy formats. The format is determined automatically by the program and is handled appropriately. Furthermore, the location of the archive is not important. It can be another file on the drive, a tape, or data on a pipe.


Install cpio 2.13 as follows:

guix install cpio@2.13

Or install the latest version:

guix install cpio

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.
