libarxx Documentation


Welcome to Advanced Resource file for C++. This library provides classes and functions to open, modify and save ARX archives.

ARX is just another file format. It is designed to contain an arbitrary amount of data chunks in a compressed state. Additionally the data chunks may be named, typed, versioned and structured in a directory tree. It therefore very much resembles any form of tar.bz2, tar.gz, rar or zip with the files beeing the data chunks.

From a pragmatic point of view this very much covers the functionality but I wouldn't have done this library if it didn't provide at least some advantage or additional feature.

To start reading and learning about libarxx you could start with Arxx::Archive which is the entry point for almost every Arxx session. Also the Arxx::Item is very important. Additionally the Modules page is recommended for reading.
