Detailed Description

this class manages the header of each slice

this class was a struct before release 2.4.0, now promoted to a class it hides the fields and uses TLV to store the fields in the archive. This makes the header easier to extend by adding new fields, while letting a chance for the old implementation to be able to use more recent archives the main use of TLV is to handle optional fields easily.

Member Function Documentation

static U_I libdar::header::min_size ( )
inlinestatic

minimal size of a header in an archive

Returns
min size of a header once stored in an archive
Note
since release 2.4.0 the header used for each slice is exactly the same. before this release the header of the first slice might be bigger, it was known that the size of the other header was "min_size" this let dar be able to find the proper slice for a given position. For compatibility with older DAR format, it is thus important to not change the value returned by this class method. This call is only used when reading archive generated by old versions of dar < 2.4.0. (aka archive format <= 7)
