       libtar_list_t *libtar_list_new(int flags, int (*cmpfunc)());
       void libtar_list_free(libtar_list_t *l, void (*freefunc)());
       int libtar_list_add_str(libtar_list_t *l, char *str, char *delim);
       int libtar_list_add(libtar_list_t *l, void *data);
       void libtar_list_del(libtar_list_t *l, libtar_node_t **n);
       int libtar_list_search(libtar_list_t *l, libtar_node_t **n, void *data,
       int (*matchfunc)());
       int libtar_list_next(libtar_list_t *l, libtar_node_t **n);
       int libtar_list_prev(libtar_list_t *l, libtar_node_t **n);
       libtar_list_t *libtar_list_dup(libtar_list_t *l);

       libtar_list_t *list1, libtar_list_t *list2);

       The libtar_list_new() function creates a new list.  The flags argument
       must be one of the following values:

              The cmpfunc argument points to a user-supplied function which
              determines the ordering of the list.

              Use the list as a stack.  New elements are added to the front of
              the list.

              Use the list as a queue.  New elements are added to the end of
              the list.

       The libtar_list_free() function deallocates all memory associated with
       the list l.  If freefunc is not NULL, it is called to free memory
       associated with each node in the list.

       The libtar_list_add() function adds the element pointed to by data to
       the list l.  The position of the new element will be determined by the
       flags passed to libtar_list_new() when the list was created.

       The libtar_list_add_str() function tokenizes the string str using the
       delimiter characters in the string delim.  The resulting tokens are
       added to list l using libtar_list_add().

       The libtar_list_search() function searches for an element which matches
       data using the matching function matchfunc.  If matchfunc is NULL, a
       default matching function designed for ASCII strings is used.
       Searching begins from the node pointed to by n.

       The libtar_list_del() function removes the entry pointed to by n from
       the list pointed to by l.

       The libtar_list_dup() function creates a copy of the list l using
       dynamically allocated memory.

       The libtar_list_merge() function creates a new list with flags and
       cmpfunc, in the same way as libtar_list_new().  It then adds all
       elements from list1 and list2 using libtar_list_add().

       The libtar_list_new(), libtar_list_dup(), and libtar_list_merge()
       functions return a pointer to the new list structure, or NULL on error.

       The libtar_list_next(), libtar_list_prev(), and libtar_list_search()
       functions return 1 when valid data is returned, or 0 otherwise.

       The libtar_list_add() and libtar_list_add_str() functions return 0 on
       success, or -1 on error.
