Archive::Rar - Interface with the 'rar' command
use Archive::Rar; my $rar = Archive::Rar->new(); $rar->Add( -size => $size_of_parts, -archive => $archive_filename, -files => \@list_of_files, );
To extract files from archive:
use Archive::Rar; my $rar = Archive::Rar->new( -archive => $archive ); $rar->List( ); my $res = $rar->Extract( ); print "Error $res in extracting from $archive\n" if ( $res );
To list archived files:
use Archive::Rar; my $rar = Archive::Rar->new( -archive => $archive ); $rar->List( ); $rar->PrintList( );
Using further options:
use Archive::Rar; my $rar = Archive::Rar->new( -archive => $archive ); my $res = $rar->Extract(-donotoverwrite => 1, -quiet => 1 ); print "Error $res in extracting from $archive\n" if ( $res );
This is a module for the handling of rar archives.
Locates the rar command (from PATH or from regedit for Win32) and encapsulate it to create, extract and list rar archives.
Note: There are a few things that have gone awry. Have a look at the Archive::Rar::Passthrough module that is part of this distribution. It is a lower-level interface to the
rar command, but it does some things in a safer way than this module (namely shell escaping or lack thereof).
At the moment these methods are implemented:
Returns a new Rar object. You can pass defaults options.
Add file to an archive.
Extract the contains of an archive.
Fill the 'list' variable of the object whith the index of an archive. Returns 0 on success or a numerical error code.
Prints the file contents list that was previously generated using
Returns an array with the file contents list that was previously generated using
List(). Adding the -excludepaths option and setting it to true, the pathnames will be excluded and a simple basename of the listed files will be returned.
List of files to add. You can use a scalar value or an array reference.
No output for the rar command if True.
Create self-extracting archive.
Size of the parts in bytes.
Level of verbosity.
Exclude paths from names.
Do not overwrite existing files if True.
For Unix-like systems only, this options runs the extraction with low scheduling priority, if Ture.
As of the current version, the system commands calling 'rar' are assembled as a string. This means that some parameters which take a string may have problems with shell quoting.
