Xar (archiver)

xar (short for "eXtensible ARchive format") is an open source file archiver and the archiver’s file format.

Xar was created within the OpenDarwin project and is used in Mac OS X 10.5 for software installation routines – replacing gzipped pax files. [http://www.nabble.com/xar-in-Mac-OS-X-t2081148.html Nabble – xar in Mac OS X] ]

The latest version of RPM RPM5 uses xar. [http://rpm5.org/roadmap.php RPM 5 package manager] ]
