'archive.tar/',

    
//And is written to ...
    
File_Archive::toArchive(       // ... a zip archive

Extracting a file from an archive

Use extract() to get files out of an archive. When specifying the file to extract, make sure to use the archive name as first folder.

<?php
require_once "File/Archive.php";

File_Archive::extract(
    
'archive.tar/inner.tgz/file.txt',
    
File_Archive::toOutput()
);
?>
