;;; Commentary:

;; This package attempts to make dealing with Unix 'tar' archives easier.
;; When this code is loaded, visiting a file whose name ends in '.tar' will
;; cause the contents of that archive file to be displayed in a Dired-like
;; listing.  It is then possible to use the customary Dired keybindings to
;; extract sub-files from that archive, either by reading them into their own
;; editor buffers, or by copying them directly to arbitrary files on disk.
;; It is also possible to delete sub-files from within the tar file and write
;; the modified archive back to disk, or to edit sub-files within the archive
;; and re-insert the modified files into the archive.  See the documentation
;; string of tar-mode for more info.

;; This code now understands the extra fields that GNU tar adds to tar files.

;; This interacts correctly with "uncompress.el" in the Emacs library,
;; which you get with
;;  (autoload 'uncompress-while-visiting "uncompress")
;;  (setq auto-mode-alist (cons '("\\.Z$" . uncompress-while-visiting)
;;			   auto-mode-alist))
;; Do not attempt to use tar-mode.el with crypt.el, you will lose.

;;    ***************   TO DO   ***************
;; o  chmod should understand "a+x,og-w".
;; o  It's not possible to add a NEW file to a tar archive; not that
;;    important, but still...
;; o  The code is less efficient that it could be - in a lot of places, I
;;    pull a 512-character string out of the buffer and parse it, when I could
;;    be parsing it in place, not garbaging a string.  Should redo that.
;; o  I'd like a command that searches for a string/regexp in every subfile
;;    of an archive, where <esc> would leave you in a subfile-edit buffer.
;;    (Like the Meta-R command of the Zmacs mail reader.)
;; o  Sometimes (but not always) reverting the tar-file buffer does not
;;    re-grind the listing, and you are staring at the binary tar data.
;;    Typing 'g' again immediately after that will always revert and re-grind
;;    it, though.  I have no idea why this happens.
;; o  Tar-mode interacts poorly with crypt.el and zcat.el because the tar
;;    write-file-hook actually writes the file.  Instead it should remove the
;;    header (and conspire to put it back afterwards) so that other write-file
;;    hooks which frob the buffer have a chance to do their dirty work.  There
;;    might be a problem if the tar write-file-hook does not come *first* on
;;    the list.
;; o  Block files, sparse files, continuation files, and the various header
;;    types aren't editable.  Actually I don't know that they work at all.

;; Rationale:

;; Why does tar-mode edit the file itself instead of using tar?

;; That means that you can edit tar files which you don't have room for
;; on your local disk.

;; I don't know about recent features in gnu tar, but old versions of tar
;; can't replace a file in the middle of a tar file with a new version.
;; Tar-mode can.  I don't think tar can do things like chmod the subfiles.
;; An implementation which involved unpacking and repacking the file into
;; some scratch directory would be very wasteful, and wouldn't be able to
;; preserve the file owners.

this is the size of the *tape* blocks, but when writing to a file, it doesn't
matter much.  The only noticeable difference is that if a tar file does not

  "Major mode for viewing a tar file as a dired-like listing of its contents.
You can move around using the usual cursor motion commands.
Letters no longer insert themselves.
Type `e' to pull a file out of the tar file and into its own buffer;
or click mouse-2 on the file's line in the Tar mode buffer.
Type `c' to copy an entry from the tar file into another file on disk.

If you edit a sub-file of this archive (as with the `e' command) and
save it with \\[save-buffer], the contents of that buffer will be
saved back into the tar-file buffer; in this way you can edit a file
inside of a tar archive without extracting it and re-archiving it.
