could anything.tgz be a variable?
$tar->read('$tar_file",1, { 'extract' => 1 });

    Greetings mrbbq,

    You have a single-quote just before $tar_file that doesn't match the double-quote at the end. You should either change the single to a double, or (and better) just drop the quotes.

    use strict; my $tar_file = 'anything.tgz'; $tar->read( $tar_file, 1, { 'extract' => 1 } );
