File::ShareDir::Tarball - Deal transparently with shared files distributed as tarballs
use File::ShareDir::Tarball ':all';
# use exactly like File::ShareDir
$dir = dist_dir('File-ShareDir');
If the shared files of a distribution are contained in a tarball (see Dist::Zilla::Plugin::ShareDir::Tarball for why you would want to do that), automatically extract the archive in a temporary directory and return the path to that directory. If called for a regular distribution without a bundle file (shared-files.tar.gz), it'll return the original shared dir. In other words, from the consumer point of view, it'll behave just like File::ShareDir.
Exports dist_dir() and dist_file().
Behaves just like dist_dir() from File::ShareDir.
