Modern Perl bindings to libarchive

ArchiveLibarchive provides a Perl object-oriented interface to the libarchive library.

It can also be installed on most Linux distributions. But wait, there is more, libarchive supports a number of formats, compressors and filters transparently, so it can be a useful when used as a universal archiver/extractor.
