    Yes googling goes a long way. You could use Archive::Extract if your aim is to only extract files. You code would look like this:
    use Archive::Extract; ### build an Archive::Extract object ### my $ae = Archive::Extract->new( archive => 'foo.tgz' ); ### extract to /tmp directory ### my $ok = $ae->extract( to => '/tmp' ) or die $ae->error; ### get files from the archive ### my $files = $ae->files;

    If you're doing more than just extraction then look at Archive::Zip
