Subject: Re: Archive::Tar uncompress question
I’m not sure. I’m just surprised that tarsimple uses
Archive::Tar as its name, instead of Archive::Tar::Wrapper or
something like that, since it’s just a wrapper, and not a tar
implementation in Ruby.
Are you (or anyone else) using Archive::Tar for minitar or something?
But yeah, I should probably change that to Archive::Tar::External, which
would be in line with my Net::Ping::External (a convention I adopted
from Perl, btw), although I highly doubt anyone would use both packages
in the same program.
