Alien::Package::Tgz - an object that represents a tgz package
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.
Translation table between canoical script names and the names used in tgz's.
Detect tgz files by their extention.
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 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.
Adds a populated install directory to the build tree.
Build a tgz.
