I would like to find tar and compress programms that I can run on WinNT at the Command Line. I have found several Menu driven utilities, but I am looking for a command version of such programms. MS-DOS version will not work, due to long naming convention.

or just use the ones from NT's resource kit.
Take care when using M$'s tools from the resource kit, some are half baked (vi), or errorenous (perl2bat).
