Thank you for the information. Sorry if I implied I wanted to
re-invent the wheel but actually this feedback is exactly what I was
looking for. I wanted to know existing methods to do just such
operations. Also good point about the file browsers the only
limitation to them is how much they understand the format.
So since tar looks like an excellent option for what I want to do, I
have another question before I begin my research. Do you already know
if any of these formats offer file locking with in them, ;et me say
that better. Can I open a, as example, tar file and lock a file with
in it, with out locking the entire tar archive? Just asking if you
already know if this is possible? Thank you again for the information!
