I don't know if this works - away from my trusty Linuxbox - but it is a good idea. A pure perl Archive::Zip would be a really _brilliant_ idea - great for app packaging.

A few comments just from reading the source:

  • It's a good idea to stick to one subroutine naming convention: like_this or likeThis. In Perl, like_this is preferred as more readable.
  • You have an OO interface, so why export functions (esp. automatically)? AFAICS Archive::Tar doesn't do this.
  • ... especially as you are exporting functions named the same as Perl core functions (e.g. "read")
  • Hmm... do you come from Java? I don't see anything wrong with using $this instead of $self, it is just a bit unusual.
  • int $verbose == 0: no need. Just and not $verbose would be fine.
  • Similarly, return unless fileno $filehandle; is fine, and avoids non-standard brackets.

I'm just looking for nitpicks, you understand. It seems like very nice, clear code.

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
