Archive-Tar Documentation

Some Fossies usage hints in advance:

  1. To see the Doxygen generated documentation please click on one of the items in the steelblue colored "quick index" bar above or use the side panel at the left which displays a hierarchical tree-like index structure and is adjustable in width.
  2. If you want to search for something by keyword rather than browse for it you can use the client side search facility (using Javascript and DHTML) that provides live searching, i.e. the search results are presented and adapted as you type in the Search input field at the top right.
  3. Doxygen doesn't incorporate all member files but just a definable subset (basically the main project source code files that are written in a supported language). So to search and browse all member files you may visit the Fossies Archive-Tar-2.40.tar.gz contents page and use the Fossies standard member browsing features (also with source code highlighting and additionally with optional code folding).
This is the README file for Archive::Tar, the Perl module for creation
and in-memory manipulation of tar files.

* Installation

Archive::Tar uses the standard perl module install process

perl Makefile.PL
make test (optional but recommended)
make install

This module uses no C-coded parts in itself, but it will try to use
the IO::Zlib module to read and write gzipped tarfiles.
Archive::Tar will still work without IO::Zlib, it will just complain
when you try to use a compressed archive or write one, since it
obviously can't.
