Hi

Anybody  ever heard of a bug in tar program ?

I have two versions of tar.
In this version --exclude-from FILE works perfect.
150796 Aug 27  2001 /bin/tar  [ls -l /bin/tar]

Where as in this version --exclude-from FILE doesn't work
138016 Oct 11  1999 /bin/tar  [ls -l /bin/tar]


How can I see which version of tar I am using ?


Richard
