Programmatic process to create archive packages

I'm looking for a way to programmatically create/update archive packages from the command line. I have a source code repository that will have a probe, the configuration file, and other supporting files or scripts. I'd like to automate the creation/update of archive packages using make and the Nimbus Perl libraries.

Looking through the distsrv technical brief found in the Self-Service Center, I see that there are the callback commands:

archive_put_start(name,version,file_content) - returns id
archive_put_next(id, file_content)
archive_put_end(id)

Since file_content is listed as having a Void type, what should I be passing here?

What other callbacks are required?
