    ptar is a small, tar look-alike program that uses the perl module
    Archive::Tar to extract, create and list tar archives.


    c   Create ARCHIVE_FILE or STDOUT (-) from FILE
    x   Extract from ARCHIVE_FILE or STDIN (-)
    t   List the contents of ARCHIVE_FILE or STDIN (-)
    f   Name of the ARCHIVE_FILE to use. Default is './default.tar'
    z   Read/Write zlib compressed ARCHIVE_FILE (not always available)
    v   Print filenames as they are added or extracted from ARCHIVE_FILE
    h   Prints this help message
    C   CPAN mode - drop 022 from permissions
