Reader specifications

CpioArchiveReader is implemented based on Ubuntu Manpage - cpio — format of cpio archive files.

  • Only New ASCII Format format is supported

  • Cpio files do not have metadata. GetMetaDataAsync will throw an exception at runtime.

Getting started

Extract all or specific files

var reader = new CpioArchiveReader();

await foreach (
    var entry in reader
        .GetFileEntriesAsync(stream, IArchiveReader.MATCH_ALL_FILES)
) {
    // entry.Name
    // entry.Content
    Console.WriteLine($"Found file {entry.Name} ({entry.Content.Length} bytes)")

Extract specific files only

var reader = new CpioArchiveReader();

// use regular expression to match files (path + file name)
await foreach (
    var entry in reader
        .GetFileEntriesAsync(stream, "[.]md$", "[.]txt$")
) {
    // found a Markdown or text file
