Mac-savvy suntar

A freeware alternative to DeskTape for putting Mac data on a DAT is Sauro Speranzo’s suntar program. I’ve used it to transport large amounts of data between Mac and Unix systems. It supports BinHex and so should also be quite usable between Mac systems. It has the advantage that a recipient doesn’t need a DAT on her Mac if she has LAN access to a Unix system.
