Chapter 2. Using Dargui

Copying and reformatting archives

DarGUI can be used to make copies of existing archives, changing the sizes of the slices used to save them. This feature uses the dar_xform utility and is not available if dar_xform cannot be found in the same location as the dar executable.

Copy archive dialog

To make a copy of a dar archive, first open the archive, then select Save Copy from the File menu. This option will be disabled if dar_xform has not been found. A destination base name for the copy must be given.  Slice sizes can be entered in the same manner as when creating an archive. It is also possible to specify a command which will be executed each time a slice has been completed.
