Version 3 (modified by fperrad, 4 years ago)

--

Things we would like to add for the OS interface and OS-related libraries (mostly from fperrad):

  • chmod(2) or similar interface (see TT#1322)
  • some means of accessing archive (tar) files
  • some means of generating compressed (gzip) files, for example a GzipHandle PMC which wraps zlib

The goal here is to reduce dependency on our system(3) wrapper, which is a portability liability.
