Tarlisted takes lines of text as an input and creates tar archive based on that information. Each line contains permission, user, group, and a path name that are to be written in the header part of the tar entry. In addition, at the end of line the syntax varies depending the file type archived. For example, in the case of regular files, the filename where file content is read is added. Tarlisted creates POSIX.1-1998 tar file format only, and can archive all seven of the file types it supports.

Release Notes: An option to pipe tar content internally to a postprocessor (such as gzip, bzip, or tar) was added so that tarlisted errors can be caught by the shell when such functionality is required. A real man page was added. A Makefile with build and install targets was created.
