NAME

       tar_block_read,  tar_block_write - macros to call read and write functions for the correct
       tar archive type

SYNOPSIS

       #include <libtar.h>

       int tar_block_read(TAR *t, char *buf);

       int tar_block_write(TAR *t, char *buf);

VERSION

       This man page documents version 1.2 of libtar.

DESCRIPTION

       The tar_block_read() and tar_block_write() macros call the read and  write  functions  for
       the  tar  archive  type  associated  with the TAR handle t.  This type is set when the TAR
       handle is created using tar_open().

RETURN VALUE

       These macros return the same values as the corresponding read and write functions.
