Alien::Build::Plugin::Extract::ArchiveTar - Plugin to extract a tarball using Archive::Tar
use alienfile; plugin 'Extract::ArchiveTar' => ( format => 'tar.gz', );
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.
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.
Returns true if the plugin is able to handle the archive of the given format.
