How to validate a TAR file in C# .Net Framework

Today we will be looking into setting up a complete validation solution for TAR archives. Normally this might be something of an undertaking, as the coding required is actually quite expansive. But that’s not the case today; we will be doing this in an incredibly simple manner, as you will soon see. Let’s dive straight in!

First comes our installation. We can achieve this through the following command for the Package Manager console.

Install-Package Cloudmersive.APIClient.NET.DocumentAndDataConvert -Version 3.2.8

Next comes our function call, which can be done using an API instance, as demonstrated right here:

using System;using System.Diagnostics;using Cloudmersive.APIClient.NET.DocumentAndDataConvert.Api;using Cloudmersive.APIClient.NET.DocumentAndDataConvert.Client;using Cloudmersive.APIClient.NET.DocumentAndDataConvert.Model;namespace Example{public class ValidateDocumentTarValidationExample{public void main(){// Configure API key authorization: ApikeyConfiguration.Default.AddApiKey("Apikey", "YOUR_API_KEY");// Uncomment below to setup prefix (e.g. Bearer) for API key, if needed// Configuration.Default.AddApiKeyPrefix("Apikey", "Bearer");var apiInstance = new ValidateDocumentApi();var inputFile = new System.IO.Stream(); // System.IO.Stream | Input file to perform the operation on.try{// Validate a TAR Tarball Archive file (TAR)DocumentValidationResult result = apiInstance.ValidateDocumentTarValidation(inputFile);Debug.WriteLine(result);}catch (Exception e){Debug.Print("Exception when calling ValidateDocumentApi.ValidateDocumentTarValidation: " + e.Message );}}}}

And that’s a wrap!
