This is a very old archiver, which is not recommended for adoption at new sites. Unless you're already using AR, ask tech-talk for what programs you should look at instead.
The following documents are available. Textual links are to HTML documents, other formats are indicated by an icon link.
The following tar file contains source code only (no binaries), and was compressed using gnuzip.
Ar requires that the Tk/Tcl, Motif and X11 header files and libraries be available and that the TK, TCL, X11, and MOTIF settings in CONFIG_SITE.<host_arch> be set correctly.
Since ar uses header files and/or libraries from the following extensions, it is necessary that they be downloaded and built first.
