in reply to Archive::Tar extract

If I read the Archive::Tar documentation correctly, you're trying to extract files from libpst.tar.gz and then write each one in turn to file C:/extract/libpst.tar.gz. This is probably not what you want.

You may find it useful to run your script under strace (or whatever the equivalent is on Windows) so you can see what the underlying system calls are and what it's trying to do to what files.

    I am doing what is written in the documentation , ie extract archive files one by one to specified location but it is not writing to the specified location

      No, you are not doing what is written in the documentation. DrHyde is correct.

      The documentation shows: $tar->extract_file( 'name/in/archive', 'name/i/want/to/give/it' );

      Your code has this line though: $tar->extract_file($file, "C:/extract/$input"); # Extract $file to "C:/extract/libpst.tar.gz"

      If you change it to the following it might work better: $tar->extract_file($file, "C:/extract"); # Extract $file to "C:/extract"
