Purpose

Synopsis
procedure tarlist(opt:integer,tarfile:text,lsf:list of text, filters:string)
procedure tarlist(tarfile:text,lsf:list of text)
Arguments
opt 
Options:
SYS_NODIR 
Do not report directories (only files)
SYS_DIRONLY 
Report only directories
tarfile 
File name of the archive
lsf 
Resulting list of file names

File name filters (default: all files reported)
Example
The following prints the list of files included in the archive myfiles.tar:
tarlist("myfiles.tar",lsf)
writeln(lsf)
Further information
1. The filters argument has a similar structure as the corresponding argument of procedure findfiles except that wildcard characters "*" and "?" may appear anywhere in a path. A file is reported if it matches any of the patterns of this list.
2. When evaluating the filters, file name matching is achieved using function pathmatch and differences may be observed depending on the operating system (e.g. file names are case sensitive under Posix systems but not under Windows).
3. This implementation processes only regular files and directories: other file types included in the archive (like links) are silently ignored.
