tarfile 0.2.5

tarfile is a pure python module that allows read and write access to tar
and tar.gz archives. Its interface is compatible to the zipfile standard
module. This will make it easy to integrate it in existing projects that
already use zipfile, for example.

some other features:
- platform independent
- handles all common file types: files, directories, symlinks and fifos
- manages GNUtar extensions like longnames and longlinks
- stores all meta-information about files, like permission, modification
time, username, user id etc.
- rather fast

It is available at:


I hope, it will be useful.

Suggestions, comments and patches are welcome.
