Hi Folks,

I have been rewriting the restore side of clitar to make it more readable
and hopefully, easier to maintain.

I have done a lot of testing of this code but need more testing from people.

Here is what I have done:

- restored files to a samba-based share and then did a diff agains the
originals to find no changes

- restored files to a Win95 machine to ensure that file sizes and dates are

Win95 objects to a change date request, but seems to change the date as
requested anyway.  I will have to use netmon to check this out.

What I have not done yet is a diff of the files under Win95 to check if
they are the same. Is there a diff command?

Also, I would like more people to check the restore function to ensure that
it works correctly.
