Constructor & Destructor Documentation

KArchive::KArchive ( const QString fileName)
protected

Base constructor (protected since this is a pure virtual class).

Parameters
fileNameis a local path (e.g. "/tmp/myfile.ext"), from which the archive will be read from, or into which the archive will be written, depending on the mode given to open().

Definition at line 110 of file karchive.cpp.

KArchive::KArchive ( QIODevice dev)
protected

Base constructor (protected since this is a pure virtual class).

Parameters
devthe I/O device where the archive reads its data Note that this can be a file, but also a data buffer, a compression filter, etc. For a file in writing mode it is better to use the other constructor though, to benefit from the use of QSaveFile when saving.

Definition at line 121 of file karchive.cpp.

Member Function Documentation

bool KArchive::addLocalDirectory ( const QString path,
const QString destName 
)

Writes a local directory into the archive, including all its contents, recursively.

Calls addLocalFile for each file to be added.

It will also add a path that is a symbolic link to a directory. The symbolic link will be dereferenced and the content of the directory it is pointing to added recursively. However, symbolic links under path will be stored as is.

Parameters
pathfull path to an existing local directory, to be added to the archive.
destNamethe resulting name (or relative path) of the file in the archive.

Definition at line 355 of file karchive.cpp.

bool KArchive::addLocalFile ( const QString fileName,
const QString destName 
)

Writes a local file into the archive.

The main difference with writeFile, is that this method minimizes memory usage, by not loading the whole file into memory in one go.

If fileName is a symbolic link, it will be written as is, i. e. it will not be resolved before.

Parameters
fileNamefull path to an existing local file, to be added to the archive.
destNamethe resulting name (or relative path) of the file in the archive.

Definition at line 261 of file karchive.cpp.

bool KArchive::close ( )
virtual

Closes the archive.

Inherited classes might want to reimplement closeArchive instead.

Returns
true if close succeeded without problems
See also
open

Definition at line 211 of file karchive.cpp.

virtual bool KArchive::closeArchive ( )
protectedpure virtual

Closes the archive.

Called by close.

Implemented in KZip, KTar, KAr, KRcc, and K7Zip.

bool KArchive::createDevice ( QIODevice::OpenMode  mode)
protectedvirtual

Can be reimplemented in order to change the creation of the device (when using the fileName constructor).

By default this method uses QSaveFile when saving, and a simple QFile on reading. This method is called by open().

Reimplemented in KTar.

Definition at line 600 of file karchive.cpp.

bool KArchive::open ( QIODevice::OpenMode  mode)
virtual

Opens the archive for reading or writing.

Definition at line 136 of file karchive.cpp.

virtual bool KArchive::openArchive ( QIODevice::OpenMode  mode)
protectedpure virtual

Opens an archive for reading or writing.

Called by open.

Parameters
modemay be QIODevice::ReadOnly or QIODevice::WriteOnly

Implemented in KZip, KTar, KAr, K7Zip, and KRcc.

bool KArchive::prepareWriting ( const QString name,
const QString user,
const QString group,
qint64  size,
mode_t  perm = 0100644,
const QDateTime atime = QDateTime(),
const QDateTime mtime = QDateTime(),
const QDateTime ctime = QDateTime() 
)

Here's another way of writing a file into an archive: Call prepareWriting(), then call writeData() as many times as wanted then call finishWriting( totalSize ).

For tar.gz files, you need to know the size before hand, it is needed in the header! For zip files, size isn't used.

This method also allows some file metadata to be set. However, depending on the archive type not all metadata might be regarded.

Parameters
namethe name of the file
userthe user that owns the file
groupthe group that owns the file
sizethe size of the file
permpermissions of the file
atimetime the file was last accessed
mtimemodification time of the file
ctimetime of last status change

Definition at line 442 of file karchive.cpp.

KArchiveDirectory * KArchive::rootDir ( )
protectedvirtual

Retrieves or create the root directory.

The default implementation assumes that openArchive() did the parsing, so it creates a dummy rootdir if none was set (write mode, or no '/' in the archive). Reimplement this to provide parsing/listing on demand.

Returns
the root directory

Definition at line 494 of file karchive.cpp.

void KArchive::setDevice ( QIODevice dev)
protected

Can be called by derived classes in order to set the underlying device.

Note that KArchive will -not- own the device, it must be deleted by the derived class.

Definition at line 584 of file karchive.cpp.

void KArchive::setErrorString ( const QString errorStr)
protected

Sets error description.

Parameters
errorStrerror description
Since
5.29

Definition at line 459 of file karchive.cpp.

void KArchive::setRootDir ( KArchiveDirectory rootDir)
protected

Derived classes call setRootDir from openArchive, to set the root directory after parsing an existing archive.

Definition at line 593 of file karchive.cpp.

bool KArchive::writeData ( const char *  data,
qint64  size 
)
virtual

Write data into the current file - to be called after calling prepareWriting.

Reimplemented in KZip, and K7Zip.

Definition at line 409 of file karchive.cpp.

bool KArchive::writeDir ( const QString name,
const QString user = QString(),
const QString group = QString(),
mode_t  perm = 040755,
const QDateTime atime = QDateTime(),
const QDateTime mtime = QDateTime(),
const QDateTime ctime = QDateTime() 
)

If an archive is opened for writing then you can add new directories using this function.

KArchive won't write one directory twice.

This method also allows some file metadata to be set. However, depending on the archive type not all metadata might be regarded.

Parameters
namethe name of the directory
userthe user that owns the directory
groupthe group that owns the directory
permpermissions of the directory
atimetime the file was last accessed
mtimemodification time of the file
ctimetime of last status change

Definition at line 427 of file karchive.cpp.

bool KArchive::writeFile ( const QString name,
const QString user,
const QString group,
const char *  data,
qint64  size,
mode_t  perm = 0100644,
const QDateTime atime = QDateTime(),
const QDateTime mtime = QDateTime(),
const QDateTime ctime = QDateTime() 
)
inline
bool KArchive::writeFile ( const QString name,
const QByteArray data,
mode_t  perm = 0100644,
const QString user = QString(),
const QString group = QString(),
const QDateTime atime = QDateTime(),
const QDateTime mtime = QDateTime(),
const QDateTime ctime = QDateTime() 
)

Writes a new file into the archive.

The archive must be opened for writing first.

The necessary parent directories are created automatically if needed. For instance, writing "mydir/test1" does not require creating the directory "mydir" first.

This method also allows some file metadata to be set. However, depending on the archive type not all metadata might be written out.

Parameters
namethe name of the file
datathe data to write
permpermissions of the file
userthe user that owns the file
groupthe group that owns the file
atimetime the file was last accessed
mtimemodification time of the file
ctimetime of last status change

Definition at line 384 of file karchive.cpp.

bool KArchive::writeSymLink ( const QString name,
const QString target,
const QString user = QString(),
const QString group = QString(),
mode_t  perm = 0120755,
const QDateTime atime = QDateTime(),
const QDateTime mtime = QDateTime(),
const QDateTime ctime = QDateTime() 
)

Writes a symbolic link to the archive if supported.

The archive must be opened for writing.

Parameters
namename of symbolic link
targettarget of symbolic link
userthe user that owns the directory
groupthe group that owns the directory
permpermissions of the directory
atimetime the file was last accessed
mtimemodification time of the file
ctimetime of last status change
