An abstract base class which serves as a common interface to archive class factories such as wxZipClassFactory.
For each supported archive type (such as zip) there is a class factory derived from wxArchiveClassFactory, which allows archive objects to be created in a generic way, without knowing the particular type of archive being used.
Archive formats such as zip

wxMBConv& GetConv() const
void SetConv(wxMBConv& conv)
The wxMBConv object that the created streams will use when translating meta-data. The initial default, set by the constructor, is wxConvLocal.
wxString GetInternalName(const wxString& name, wxPathFormat format = wxPATH_NATIVE) const
Calls the static GetInternalName() function for the archive entry type, for example wxZipEntry::GetInternalName().
wxArchiveEntry* NewEntry() const
Create a new wxArchiveEntry object of the appropriate type.
wxArchiveInputStream* NewStream(wxInputStream& stream) const
wxArchiveOutputStream* NewStream(wxOutputStream& stream) const
Create a new wxArchiveInputStream or wxArchiveOutputStream of the appropriate type.
