Archive-Tar-Stream This module was previously known as ME::TarStream and created as part of the backup system at FastMail.FM a few years ago. The first commit was Tue Feb 20 03:21:43 2007 +0000 RATIONALE Why this instead of just using gnu tar, or any of the other Archive:: packages? In a word, IO. Actually that's two words if you unpack the acronym. Unpacking a tar file in order to remove some parts and then re-pack it causes a lot of IO. Particularly for the unlink afterwards. Working in tmpfs is OK, until your files get big. We needed to repack incremental backups of up to 100Gb of emails, one file per email. Starting with a .tar.gz, and ending with a .tar.gz. Hence something that could sit in a pipe like this: zcat old.tar.gz | ./decider | gzip > new.tar.gz INSTALLATION To install this module, run the following commands: perl Makefile.PL make make test make install SUPPORT AND DOCUMENTATION After installing, you can find documentation for this module with the perldoc command. perldoc Archive::Tar::Stream You can also look for information at: RT, CPAN's request tracker (report bugs here) http://rt.cpan.org/NoAuth/Bugs.html?Dist=Archive-Tar-Stream AnnoCPAN, Annotated CPAN documentation http://annocpan.org/dist/Archive-Tar-Stream CPAN Ratings http://cpanratings.perl.org/d/Archive-Tar-Stream Search CPAN http://search.cpan.org/dist/Archive-Tar-Stream/ Upstream source code is on GitHub: http://github.com/brong/Archive-Tar/Stream/ LICENSE AND COPYRIGHT Copyright (C) 2011-2014 Bron Gondwana This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify it under the terms of either: the GNU General Public License as published by the Free Software Foundation; or the Artistic License.
