This project is a fork of Nathan Froyd's archive
code remains, but the non-portable bits have been stripped, better support for
multiple archive types (and autodetection) has been added, better blocking
support added (tar readers/writers are supposed to read/write in multiples of
512 bytes), cpio support removed, and a test suite added, along with other
miscellaneous fixes and improvements.
One major user visible difference between this library and the original archive
is that there is no need to discard entries when you are finished with them and
support has been added for seeking within a stream (using FILE-POSITION under
the hood). This means you can do something like iterate over all entries in one
go and then get a stream containing the contents of an arbitrary entry.
