NAME

Archive::Any - Single interface to deal with file archives.

VERSION

version 0.0945

SYNOPSIS

    use Archive::Any;
    my $archive = Archive::Any->new( $archive_file );
    my @files = $archive->files;
    $archive->extract;
    my $type = $archive->type;
    $archive->is_impolite;
    $archive->is_naughty;

DESCRIPTION

This module is a single interface for manipulating different archive formats. Tarballs, zip files, etc.
new
    my $archive = Archive::Any->new( $archive_file );
    my $archive = Archive::Any->new( $archive_file, $type );
    
 
$type is optional. It lets you force the file type in case Archive::Any can't figure it out.
extract
    $archive->extract;
    $archive->extract( $directory );
    
 
Extracts the files in the archive to the given $directory. If no $directory is given, it will go into the current working directory.
files
    my @file = $archive->files;
    
 
A list of files in the archive.
mime_type
    my $mime_type = $archive->mime_type();
    
 
Returns the mime type of the archive.
is_impolite
    my $is_impolite = $archive->is_impolite;
    
 
Checks to see if this archive is going to unpack into the current directory rather than create its own.
is_naughty
    my $is_naughty = $archive->is_naughty;
    
 
Checks to see if this archive is going to unpack outside the current directory.

DEPRECATED

type
    my $type = $archive->type;
    
 
Returns the type of archive. This method is provided for backwards compatibility in the Tar and Zip plugins and will be going away soon in favor of "mime_type".
