create multiple tar files with a specified maximum size

Project description

splittar allows you to create one or more tar files from a set of data where each of the generated tar files is less than a specified maximum size.

Each tar file is a proper, self-contained tar file. Other methods of backing up data to removable media requires a tar file to be split, making tar file n useless without files 1,…,n-1.

splittar was written to backup large amounts of data that spanned multiple DVDs while allowing for each DVD to be useful on its own.
