Anybody got a version of tar for Common Lisp or Rel 6??

Maybe I should have been clearer.  Tapes are not what I'm looking for.
The ability to do all the standard operations on tar >> files << is
what I'm looking for.  (If you aren't a unix weenie, the -f flag
specifies a destination, which can be a file.)  The idea is that one
is constantly shipping around large systems, consisting of several
nested directories.  In the unix world making a tar file is a good way
to do this.  That file can then be ftp'ed, or put onto a DOS or MAC
floppy, or even copied onto a tape.
