NAME
mkpaqfs – make a compressed read–only file system

SYNOPSIS
mkpaqfs [ –u ] [ –b blocksize ] [ –l label ] [ –o file ] [ source ]

DESCRIPTION
Mkpaqfs copies files from the file tree source (default .) to the paqfs(4) file system archive file.

The files and directory structure are divided into blocksize (default 4096) byte blocks. Larger blocks make large files more compact but take longer to access. Blocksize must be in the range of 512 bytes to 512K bytes. If the –u option is set, the blocks are not compressed. Otherwise each block is compressed using the flate(2) compression algorithm. The –l option embeds a label of up to 32 bytes within the file header and may be useful for identifying the file system.
