       The th_set_*() functions each set an individual field of the current tar header associated
       with the TAR handle t.  The  th_set_user()  and  th_set_group()  functions  set  both  the
       numeric user/group ID fields and the user/group name text fields.  The other functions set
       only the field that they refer to.

       The th_set_from_stat() function uses the other th_set_*() functions  to  set  all  of  the
       fields at once, based on the data passed to it in the argument s.

       The  th_finish() function sets the appropriate constants for the magic and version fields.
       It then calculates the header checksum and fills in the checksum field.
