[erlang-questions] Tar Without Paths?

Are the filenames in the FileList that you supply to create/2 (or /3) in absolute or relative form?

I believe erl_tar will use whatever filenames you give it.

Right now, every add or create adds files with their full path, so when they are extracted, they come in the form of “/home/wiget/server/files_to_tar/file1.txt instead of files_to_tar/file.txt. The only options in the man pages are irrelevant to my issue, so I assume there is some way around this. If anyone has found a way, I would greatly appreciate your insight!
