Projects / TAR/GZIP/BZIP2/ZIP Archives


TAR/GZIP/BZIP2/ZIP Archives is a class for manipulating tar, gzip, bzip2, zip, and self-extracting zip archives. It is capable of recursing through and storing a directory structure and creating archives in memory or on disk, and can allow the client to download the created archive directly from memory. Zip file comments are supported. It supports symbolic links where applicable, and archived files are automatically sorted within the archive for greater compression in gzip and bzip2 archives.
