'  Important: It is helpful to send the contents of the
'  tar.LastErrorText property when requesting support.

Dim tar As New Chilkat.Tar

'  Any string automatically begins a fully-functional 30-day trial.
Dim success As Boolean = tar.UnlockComponent("Anything for 30-day trial")
If (success <> True) Then
    Debug.WriteLine(tar.LastErrorText)
    Exit Sub
End If


'  The TAR component will produce a  GNU tar 1.13.x format
'  archive by default.
'  It is also possible to create PAX -- POSIX 1003.1-2001 format
'  or USTAR -- POSIX 1003.1-1988 format.
'  Set the WriteFormat property to "gnu", "pax", or "ustar" to
'  choose the output TAR format:
tar.WriteFormat = "gnu"

'  Add a directory tree to be included in the output TAR archive:
success = tar.AddDirRoot("/Users/chilkat/temp/abc123")
If (success <> True) Then
    Debug.WriteLine(tar.LastErrorText)
    Exit Sub
End If


'  First write a .tar, then compress to a .Z using UnixCompress.
