Alien::Build::Plugin::Extract::Negotiate - Extraction negotiation plugin

version 2.73

use alienfile;
plugin 'Extract' => (
  format => 'tar.gz',
);

This is a negotiator plugin for extracting packages downloaded from the internet. This plugin picks the best Extract plugin to do the actual work. Which plugins are picked depend on the properties you specify, your platform and environment. It is usually preferable to use a negotiator plugin rather than using a specific Extract Plugin from your alienfile.

The expected format for the download. Possible values include: "tar", "tar.gz", "tar.bz2", "tar.xz", "zip", "d".

my $name = Alien::Build::Plugin::Extract::Negotiate->pick($format);

Returns the name of the best plugin for the given format.
