10untar.c contains two procedures for extracting files from a UNIX
11tar file:
12
13    int Untar_FromMemory(unsigned char *tar_buf, unsigned long size);
14    int Untar_FromFile(char *tar_name);
15
16Untar_FromMemory(...) takes its input from a chunk of allocated memory.
17This is particularly useful when the tar is stored in Flash memory or
18comes from the FTP daemon by way of a hook.
19
20Untar_FromFile(...) is identical except the source is from an existing
21file.  The fully qualified filename is passed through char *tar_name.
