archive [target....]

Generate an archive of the target state, or only the targets specified. This can be piped into tar to inspect the target state.

-f, --format tar|tar.gz|tgz|zip

Write the archive in format. If --output is set the format is guessed from the extension, otherwise the default is tar.

-i, --include types

Only include entries of type types.

-z, --gzip

Compress the archive with gzip. This is automatically set if the format is tar.gz or tgz and is ignored if the format is zip.
