Alien::Package::Tgz(3pm)       User Contributed Perl Documentation	 Alien::Package::Tgz(3pm)

NAME
       Alien::Package::Tgz - an object that represents a tgz package

DESCRIPTION
       This is an object class that represents a tgz package, as used in Slackware.  It also
       allows conversion of raw tar files.  It is derived from Alien::Package.

CLASS DATA
       scripttrans
	   Translation table between canoical script names and the names used in tgz's.

METHODS
       checkfile
	   Detect tgz files by their extention.

       install
	   Install a tgz with installpkg. Pass in the filename of the tgz to install.

	   installpkg (a slackware program) is used because I'm not sanguine about just untarring
	   a tgz file. It might trash a system.

       scan
	   Scan a tgz file for fields. Has to scan the filename for most of the information,
	   since there is little useful metadata in the file itself.

       unpack
	   Unpack tgz.

       prep
	   Adds a populated install directory to the build tree.

       build
	   Build a tgz.
