VERSION
       This man page documents version 1.2 of libtar.

DESCRIPTION
       The th_get_*() functions extract individual fields from the current tar
       header associated with the TAR handle t.

       The TH_IS*() macros are used to evaluate what kind of file is pointed
       to by the current tar header associated with the TAR handle t.

       The TH_ISLONGNAME() and TH_ISLONGLINK() macros evaluate whether or not
       the GNU extensions are used by the current tar header associated with
       the TAR handle t.  This is only relevant if the TAR_GNU option was used
       when tar_open() was called.
