Class DumpArchiveInputStream

All Implemented Interfaces:
Closeable, AutoCloseable

The DumpArchiveInputStream reads a UNIX dump archive as an InputStream. Methods are provided to position at each successive entry in the archive, and the read each entry as a normal input stream using read().

There doesn't seem to exist a hint on the encoding of string values in any piece documentation. Given the main purpose of dump/restore is backing up a system it seems very likely the format uses the current default encoding of the system.

This class is not thread-safe
