 Archiving With Pax

On Lamp tells us about archiving with Pax.

"The name of the utility stands for "portable archive exchange," as it was designed specifically to allow portability between different versions of Unix. There's also a bit of wry humor in the name, as pax attempts to bring some "peace" to the long-standing battle over which is better: tar or cpio."
