To process large lists of file names on machines with small amounts of
memory. Use in conjunction with
`-s') option tells
tar that the list of file
names to be listed or extracted is sorted in the same order as the
files in the archive. This allows a large list of names to be used,
even on a small machine that would not otherwise be able to hold all
the names in memory at the same time. Such a sorted list can easily be
created by running
`tar -t' on the archive and editing its output.
This option is probably never needed on modern computer systems.
