This is a script for extracting files from a tar file using Google Apps Script. This script was created by native Google Apps Script.
The following 3 situations gave me the motivarion for creating this script.
- Although I had been looking for the script for extracting files from a tar file from before, I have still not been able to find it.
- Unfortunately, there are no methods for extracting the files from the tar file in Google Apps Script. But fortunately, from wiki of tar, I could retrieve the structure information of the tar data. And I can also study by creating this script.
- I found this thread at Stackoverflow. By this, I could understand that other users also want the script for extracting files from the tar file.
So I created this.
