Like tar but different.
PitCH is an archive file format that aims for high performance and minimal bloat.
PitCH vs tar
PitCH header sections add at least 3 bytes to the archive and grow as
nis file name size or file content size.
This is because pitch only stores the file name and size whereas tar has a fixed 512 byte header that includes permissions, user, etc.
PitCH has dynamically sized headers which means there is no limit to file name length or file content length; tars fixed header size limits both file name and file size.
The cli tool follows the tar command as closely as possible.
Archiving the directory

Extracting an archive into
