OmegaARc or OAR is an experimental archive file format. Intended initially as a modern alternative to the TAR archive format with zero bloat.

The OAR archive format is designed for archival purposes, as such it does not include support for file system permissions or system links. This makes the OAR format unsuitable for certain use cases.

Format Specification

The OmegaARc archive file format specification can be found in the doc folder > OAR_Format.txt
