does someone know about a perl module to read dar-archives ?
I would like to get at the meta-data (what files are present, what is the mtime
of the file, ... ?) and the files itself.
dar-archives are created using dar or kdar e.g. on GNU/Linux.
The format supports compression and slicing of archives to fit on CD/DVD media.
There are both cmdline (dar) and kde (kdar) utilities.
dar/kdar itself use a dar-library to access the archive.
I searched for a module at:
CPAN (but found nothing under Archiving)
Searched CPAN modules for 'dar' - but only got a big bunch of wrong hits, mainly
Had a look at both the dar-homepage: http://dar.linux.free.fr /
and kdar homepage: http://kdar.sourceforge.net /
So far I didn't find anything relevant.
Any further hints ?
