This module aids in the construction of iPKG packages (See links below
for description of the implemented package format). The interface is
somewhat similar to that of the Archive::Tar manpage, but with a couple
differences. I consider the module to be in a beta stage.
The typical workflow is as follows: Create a new object, add files to it, set
the properties of the iPKG package and write it to a file (or get the data as
a scalar). There are a number of properties, and many of them are compulsory
and need to be in a certain format. The module only generates the final
package if the specs are meet. See below for a description of all properties
and how to circumvent some of the checks.
