3.4 Archive basics

Archives supported by the XAD system are just a collection of files that are stored at indices ranging from 0 to the number of entries in the archive minus 1. It is not necessary to store directories as individual entries. Instead, they can also be stored as part of a filename, e.g. if a file is stored as a/b/c/test.txt in the archive, then the directories a, b, and c are implicitly declared as existing even though they don't have their individual entries in the archive but just exist as part of a file. You have to be prepared to deal with that if you manually parse archives using the functions provided by this plugin.
