NAME

Alien::Build::Plugin::Extract::ArchiveTar - Plugin to extract a tarball using Archive::Tar

VERSION

version 0.66

SYNOPSIS

 use alienfile;
 plugin 'Extract::ArchiveTar' => (
   format => 'tar.gz',
 );

DESCRIPTION

Note: in most case you will want to use Alien::Build::Plugin::Extract::Negotiate instead. It picks the appropriate Extract plugin based on your platform and environment. In some cases you may need to use this plugin directly instead.

This plugin extracts from an archive in tarball format (optionally compressed by either gzip or bzip2) using Archive::Tar.

PROPERTIES

format

Gives a hint as to the expected format. This helps make sure the prerequisites are set correctly, since compressed archives require extra Perl modules to be installed.

METHODS

handles

 Alien::Build::Plugin::Extract::ArchiveTar->handles($ext);
 $plugin->handles($ext);

Returns true if the plugin is able to handle the archive of the given format.
