NAME

Archive::Any::Create - Abstract API to create archives (tar.gz and zip)

SYNOPSIS

  use Archive::Any::Create;
  my $archive = Archive::Any::Create->new;
  $archive->container('foo');               # top-level directory
  $archive->add_file('bar.txt', $data);     # foo/bar.txt
  $archive->add_file('bar/baz.txt', $data); # foo/bar/baz.txt
  $archive->write_file('foo.tar.gz');
  $archive->write_file('foo.zip');
  $archive->write_filehandle(\*STDOUT, 'tar.gz');

DESCRIPTION

Archive::Any::Create is a wrapper module to create tar/tar.gz/zip files with a single easy-to-use API.

METHODS

new
Create new Archive::Any::Create object. No parameters.
container($dir)
Specify a top-level directory (or folder) to contain multiple files. Not necessary but recommended to create a good-manner archive file.
add_file($file, $data)
Add a file that contains $data as its content. $file can be a file in the nested subdirectory.
write_file($filename)
Write an archive file named $filename. This method is DWIMmy, in the sense that it automatically dispatches archiving module based on its filename. So, "$archive->write_file("foo.tar.gz")" will create a tarball and "$archive->write_file("foo.zip")" will create a zip file with the same contents.
write_filehandle($fh, $format)
Write an archive data stream into filehandle. $format is either, tar, tar.gz or zip.
