I have a 100 mg zip drive that I'm writing to as a raw device -- no file system -- just 'tar cvf /dev/afd0 stuff'. I am curious if there is a way to find out how big the tarball is on this kind of thing. I'm guessing maybe some kind of seek to EOF but not sure how it might be accomplished. any idea's?
