Listing the Table of Contents: (-t)

The -t option lists the table of contents of the archive. If the verbose option (-v) is included on the command line, BRU provides a more detailed table of contents. The -v option, when used with -t, provides the equivalent of an ls -l performed on your UNIX system. The -vv option, when used with -t, provides information about hard or symbolic links, as well as file sizes and so on.

When run without any of the verbose options, the table of contents is simply the list of files in the archive:

$ bru -t -f bru.out
/
/bin
/bin/cat
/dev
/dev/rfloppy0
/dev/bru.q
/usr
/usr/lib
/usr/lib/news
$

Adding -v to the command line produces a listing of the table of contents that is similar to that produced by ls -l:

$ bru -tvf bru.out
