  Description     : A generic archive extracting mechanism

Archive::Extract is a generic archive extraction mechanism.
It allows you to extract any archive file of the type .tar, .tar.gz, .gz,
.Z, tar.bz2, .tbz, .bz2, .zip, .xz,, .txz, .tar.xz or .lzma without having
to worry how it does so, or use different interfaces for each type by using
either perl modules, or commandline tools on your system.

This module is being deprecated from the perl base distribution in
5.18.0, so it is planned to package it separately. The perl 5.18 packages
will depend on, recommend or suggest deprecated modules for one release
cycle, as appropriate.
