Alien::Package::Tgz - an object that represents a tgz package
This is an object class that represents a tgz package, as used in Slackware. It also allows conversion of raw tar files. It is derived from Alien::Package.
scripttrans Translation table between canoical script names and the names used in tgz's.
checkfile Detect tgz files by their extention. install Install a tgz with installpkg. Pass in the filename of the tgz to install. installpkg (a slackware program) is used because I'm not sanguine about just untarring a tgz file. It might trash a system. scan Scan a tgz file for fields. Has to scan the filename for most of the information, since there is little useful metadata in the file itself. unpack Unpack tgz. prep Adds a populated install directory to the build tree. build Build a tgz.
