Perl interface for manipulating ar archives
Archive::Ar is a pure-perl way to handle standard ar archives.
This is useful if you have those types of old archives on the system, but it is also useful because .deb packages for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution are ar archives. This is one building block in a future chain of modules to build, manipulate, extract, and test Debian modules with no platform or architecture dependence.
You may notice that the API to Archive::Ar is similar to Archive::Tar, and this was done intentionally to keep similarity between the Archive::* modules.
