 >   ‘r’ Apply transformation to regular archive members.
 >   ‘R’ Do not apply transformation to regular archive members.
 >   ‘s’ Apply transformation to symbolic link targets.
 >   ‘S’ Do not apply transformation to symbolic link targets.
 >   ‘h’ Apply transformation to hard link targets.
 >   ‘H’ Do not apply transformation to hard link targets.

 >   Default is ‘rsh’ [...].
