xojo and tar

I have tried to find an answer but my google/search-fu is weak today. probably as no one indexes words less than 4 characters.

I need to “tar” up files in xojo. I looked at Thomas’s Zip library, MBS Compression, Einghuer’s libraries and cant find anything. Does anyone know how to tar up files without having to shell out to the prompt and doing it from there?

thanks
sb

TAR is a pretty simple mechanism

I dont know that anyone has ever posted an implementation
We have one in the IDE for sending to the remote stub but it’s “not fit for public consumption” and pretty wired into what we need

Thanks. I was hoping I didnt have to write it myself. But I might have to.

I wrote one time ago. Not fully complete but still working. Will try to search it and publish the code

that would be awesome.
