This list is excellent.

Thank you to the many people that responded. Although I did get several
suggestions, the one I tried worked, and I'll stick to it.

I need to create a portable archive using cpio "-oH crc" on
the sparc server. This file is readable on the x86 server
with "-iH crc".

Also, as it was suggested, cpio is not the best cross
platform archive utility. Using something like tar would
probably work better.

Thanks again!!
