This is experimental software for the moment and under active
Under the hood, the module Archive::BagIt::Base was adapted and
extended to support BagIt 1.0 according to RFC 8493
Also: Check out Archive::BagIt::Fast if you are willing to add some
extra dependencies to get better speed by mmap-ing files.
Archive::BagIt - An interface to make and verify bags according to the
This modules will hopefully help with the basic commands needed to
create and verify a bag. My intention is not to be strict and enforce
all of the specification. The reference implementation is the java
version and I will endeavour to maintain compatibility with it.
#read in an existing bag:
my $bag_dir = "/path/to/bag";
my $bag = Archive::BagIt->new($bag_dir);
#construct bag in an existing directory
my $bag2 = Archive::BagIt->make_bag($bag_dir);
# Validate a BagIt archive against its manifest
my $bag3 = Archive::BagIt->new($bag_dir);
my $is_valid = $bag3->verify_bag();
An Object Oriented Interface to a bag. Opens an existing bag.
my $bag = Archive::BagIt->new('/path/to/bag');
A constructor that will make and return a bag from a directory
If a data directory exists, assume it is already a bag (no checking for
invalid files in root)
An interface to verify a bag.
You might also want to check Archive::BagIt::Fast to see a more direct
way of accessing files (and thus faster).
This is the checksum for the bag, md5 of the manifest-md5.txt
Returns the bagit version according to the bagit.txt file.
Returns an array with all of the payload files (those files that are
below the data directory)
Returns an array with files that are in the root of the bag,
Return an array with the list of manifest files that exist in the bag
Return an array with the list of tagmanifest files
