This is save, a simple package for making backup of files as a compressed tar file. The idea is to create a set of links to the directories that contains the files to take backup of, reference these links as the directory part of the files to save, and create a compressed tar file containing these files.

Typical use is taking backup of the essential configuration files in a Unix installation, so that the system can be upgraded or reinstalled at a later time using the saved configuration files as a basis.

The current release is a development version.
