  Description     : API wrapper around the 'tar' utility

Archive::Tar::Wrapper is an API wrapper around the 'tar' command line
utility. It never stores anything in memory, but works on temporary directory
structures on disk instead. It provides a mapping between the logical paths
in the tarball and the 'real' files in the temporary directory on disk.

Contrary to Archive::Tar, this module allows to manipulate big
archives in relatively tight memory conditions, as long as there is
enough space on disk to hold temporary files.
