Michael,Thanks for the pointers. I'll have a look when I get a few minutes.On Tue, Jun 5, 2018 at 9:44 AM, Michael Albinus <address@hidden> wrote:Douglas Lewan <address@hidden> writes:

Thanks for the offer. At first step, you might just try the
tramp-archive solution, and provide feedback about usability (nobody did
so far). Just open a file like "/path/to/file.cpio/", and play with
it. The point is the trailing slash. You could open even compressed
archives, like ".../file.cpio.gz/".
For knowing libarchive and binding Lisp to a C library ... all of this I
didn't know either when starting to contribute to Emacs. I've learned it
by doing, which seems the only way to do it :-)

I have written test/lisp/net/tramp-archive-te
sts.el for such
purposes. Maybe you can steal some ideas or code from there ...
And of course, you could ask me whatever you want about.
Best regards, Michael.
