/** * Tar is a utility for collecting multiple files (or any arbitrary data) into one * archive file, while untar is the inverse utility to extract the files from an * archive. Files are not compressed, only collected into the archive. * * ### File format and limitations * * The ustar file format is used for creating the archive file. * While this format is compatible with most tar readers, * the format has several limitations, including: * * Files must be smaller than 8GiB * * Filenames (including path) must be shorter than 256 characters * * Filenames (including path) cannot contain non-ASCII characters * * Sparse files are not supported * In addition to the ustar format, untar may also read from the pax format. * However, additional features, such as longer filenames, may be ignored. * * @module */export * from "./tar.ts";export * from "./untar.ts";
