Treat UID/GID as numeric if prefixed by + (-R option)
The IDs supplied with the -R option are treated as numeric (without looking them up in the system database), when prefixed with +. This allows to force using numeric value if a user (group) with a numeric name exists in the database. Reported by Joshua Briefman <>. * src/userspec.c (parse_user_spec): Use + as an indicator of a numeric UID/GID. * doc/cpio.1: Document changes. * doc/cpio.texi: Likewise.
