I have a wierd question about "tar".  how is the order of what it put 
into the archive dictated?  I assumed it was alphabetic, but I've been 
putting a file to tape and is not in alpha order.  It's not like it 
matters really but I was woundering if anyone has some insight to this.  
the man page does not shed any light into this.
