Module Version: 0.0932   Source   Latest Release: Archive-Any-0.0941

NAME ^

Archive::Any - Single interface to deal with file archives.

SYNOPSIS ^

  use Archive::Any;

  my $archive = Archive::Any->new($archive_file);

  my @files = $archive->files;

  $archive->extract;

  my $type = $archive->type;

  $archive->is_impolite;
  $archive->is_naughty;

DESCRIPTION ^

This module is a single interface for manipulating different archive formats. Tarballs, zip files, etc.

new
  my $archive = Archive::Any->new($archive_file);
  my $archive = Archive::Any->new($archive_file, $type);

$type is optional. It lets you force the file type in-case Archive::Any can't figure it out.

extract
  $archive->extract;
  $archive->extract($directory);

Extracts the files in the archive to the given $directory. If no $directory is given, it will go into the current working directory.

files
  my @file = $archive->files;

A list of files in the archive.

mime_type
 my $mime_type = $archive->mime_type();

Returns the mime type of the archive.

is_impolite
  my $is_impolite = $archive->is_impolite;

Checks to see if this archive is going to unpack into the current directory rather than create its own.

is_naughty
  my $is_naughty = $archive->is_naughty;

Checks to see if this archive is going to unpack outside the current directory.

DEPRECATED ^

type
  my $type = $archive->type;

Returns the type of archive. This method is provided for backwards compatibility in the Tar and Zip plugins and will be going away soon in favor of mime_type.
