Software Version Description for Docs::Site_SVD::Archive_TarGzip - tar and gzip or untar and gunzip with a small memory footprint Revision: B Version: 0.03 Date: 2004/05/14 Prepared for: General Public Prepared by: SoftwareDiamonds.com E<lt>support@SoftwareDiamonds.comE<gt> Copyright: copyright © 2003 Software Diamonds Classification: NONE
This paragraph identifies and provides an overview of the released files.
This release, identified in 3.2, is a collection of Perl modules that extend the capabilities of the Perl language.
The Archive::TarGzip module provides tar subroutine to archive a list of files in an archive file in the tar format. The archve file may be optionally compressed using the gzip compression routines. The ARchive::TarGzip module also provides a untar subroutine that can extract the files from the tar or tar/gzip archive files.
The tar and untar top level subroutines use methods from the Archive::TarGzip class. The Archive::TarGzip class is dervided from its parent Archive::Tar class. The new methods supplied with the Archive::TarGzip derived class provide means to access individual files within the archive file without bringing the entire archive file into memory. When the gzip compression option is active, the compression is performed on the fly without creating an intermediate uncompressed tar file. The new methods provide a smaller memory footprint that enhances performance for very large archive files.
This document releases Archive::TarGzip version 0.03 providing a description of the inventory, installation instructions and other information necessary to utilize and track this release.
All file specifications in this SVD use the Unix operating system file specification.

Changes are as follows
Outsource the gzip compression to Tie::Gzip.
Change the mode on tar directories from 666 to 777.
The lastest build of Test::STDmaker expects the test library in the same directory as the test script. Coordiated with the lastest Test::STDmaker by moving the test library from tlib to t/Archive, the same directory as the test script and deleting the test library File::TestPath program module.
This installation requires that the installation site has the Perl programming language installed. There are no other additional requirements or tailoring needed of configurations files, adaptation data or other software needed for this installation particular to any installation site.
There are no related documents needed for the installation and test of this release.
Instructions for installation, installation tests and installation support are as follows:
To installed the release file, use the CPAN module pr PPM module in the Perl release or the INSTALL.PL script at the following web site:
Follow the instructions for the the chosen installation software.
If all else fails, the file may be manually installed. Enter one of the following repositories in a web browser:
Right click on 'Archive-TarGzip-0.03.tar.gz' and download to a temporary installation directory. Enter the following where $make is 'nmake' for microsoft windows; otherwise 'make'.
gunzip Archive-TarGzip-0.03.tar.gz tar -xf Archive-TarGzip-0.03.tar perl Makefile.PL $make test $make install
On Microsoft operating system, nmake, tar, and gunzip must be in the exeuction path. If tar and gunzip are not install, download and install unxutils from
'Tie::Gzip' => '0.01', 'File::AnySpec' => '1.11', 'Data::Startup' => '0.02', 'File::Package' => '0.00', 'File::Where' => '0.00',
Most Perl installation software will run the following test script(s) as part of the installation:
