MXTAR(1) Mtools Users Manual MXTAR(1)
mxtar - Wrapper for using GNU tar directly from a floppy disk
mxtar [ - ] [ tar-options ] file
mxtar let you use GNU tar(1) on a floppy disk without mounting it using
mtools(1). It is not strictly necessary on Debian GNU/Linux, because
the GNU tar(1) program provides the same capability after copying the
file locally with
mcopy file destination
but this utility is provided in the mtools package for other platforms
and is retained here for completeness.

Debian/GNU mtools package.
