convert archive files to common formats
convert [-x] [-5] infile outfile
command transforms input
infile to output outfile.
infile must be an archive file and
outfile is the equivalent System V archive file.
All other types of input to the convert
command are passed unmodified from the input file
to the output file (along with appropriate warning messages).
To convert a XENIX archive,
use the -x option.
Using this option converts the general archive
structure but leaves archive members unmodified.
To convert a non-System V archive file,
use the -5 option.
infile must be different from outfile.
convert returns 0 on success and 1 on failure.
TMPDIR is usually
/usr/tmp but can be re-defined by setting the environment variable
is not part of any
currently supported standard;
it was developed by UNIX System Laboratories, Inc. and
is used by permission.
