Kamisama sat in the tree outside, looking at Simon. Simon blinked twice. Kamisama started signing the answer to each exam question. A. Simon wrote it. C. And Simon wrote C. And D, A, B, C, B, D, A, and until the final answer A. He walked to the front of the class and put the paper in the teacher's in-box. Then he walked back to his desk, put his head in his folded arms, and fell asleep for the rest of the period. Hand crafting ustar files ustar files are archives of directory trees in regular files. They're generally used to copy over whole trees without messing up filesystem metadata (e.g. xfer to Windows, lose your dates and perms, xfer to UNIX, have to chmod chown etc) and historically have been used to back shit up to tape, hence Tape ARchive. A ustar file is a little header and then the content of a file, and then usually some padding unless you won the lottery and also got struck by lightning and your file is perfectly sized. Bytes 0-100 (0x00 to 0x64) are the UNIX file name. This is padded out with nul bytes if it's not filled. If it is filled with the full hundred characters it doesn't need to have any padding or nul terminator (see pax(1p)). for(int n = printf("%s", filename); n++ < 100; putchar('\0')); Bytes 101-108 (0x65 to 0x6b) are the UNIX file mode in octal, written in ASCII and nul-terminated (so seven digits can be expressed). printf("%7o\0", mode); printf '%s' "blah/$day.html" dd bs=1 count=80 /dev/null printf '0000644\0' Midnight! <^>
