(* = Graphable)



The three-letter abbreviation NUL can stand for several things:

  • National Urban League, a non-profit, nonpartisan, civil rights and community-based movement that advocates on behalf of African Americans and against racial discrimination.
  • The ASCII abbreviation for the Null character, a control character (or non-printing character) corresponding to a zero byte, used in many contexts (C (programming language)) as a marker for the end of a string.
  • The DOS bit bucket, equivalent to Unix /dev/null.
  • NuL, a South African Industrial band who releases their music for free online long before it's available on CD, and who promotes the piracy of their own material on their website.

The checksum is calculated by taking the sum of the byte values of the header block with the eight checksum bytes taken to be ascii spaces (value 32).
It is stored as a six digit octal number with leading zeroes followed by a nul and then a space.
This is probably a workaround for buggy tar implementations (the byte 0x00 is ASCII NUL).
