Utilities to save disk space

GNU cp used to detect files that contain 0-filled holes and save disk space by skipping them with lseek when writing a file and thus not allocating disk blocks. Unfortunately it does no longer. So here is program to make holes in existing files.

Also there are some scripts that help cleaning up the hard disk (finding duplicated and/or unstripped files).
