== Description A simple tar & compress library that nicely wraps external system calls. == Installation gem install archive-tar-external == Synopsis require 'archive/tar/external' include Archive # The long way t = Tar::External.new('test.tar') t.create_archive('*.rb') t.compress_archive('gzip') # The short way t = Tar::External.new('test.tar', '*.rb', 'gzip') == Prerequisites The 'tar' command line program. At least one compression program, e.g. gzip, bzip2, zip, etc. == Known Issues The tar program that comes with Solaris will not raise an error if you try to expand a file from an archive that does not contain that file. If you come across any other issues, please report them on the project page at https://github.com/djberg96/archive-tar-external. == History This project was originally named "archive-tarsimple", but was renamed on April 7, 2006.
