Subject [Bug 53921] New: tar task bug when dealing with UTF-8 char isn't solved
Date Sat, 22 Sep 2012 23:55:15 GMT

          Priority: P2
            Bug ID: 53921
           Summary: tar task bug when dealing with UTF-8 char isn't solved
          Severity: normal
    Classification: Unclassified
          Hardware: Macintosh
            Status: NEW
           Version: unspecified
         Component: Core tasks
           Product: Ant

Like reported in I
have had issues with the tar task not being able to use filenames with UTF-8
characters. Consulting the source code I could see that there is an
implementation of the longfile="posix" option I committed, built and installed
version 1.9.0alpha  and was given the following error:

/Users/aacirino/Documents/ws/vtta1.0/build.xml:60: Problem creating TAR:
request to write '110' bytes exceeds size in header of '0' bytes for entry

when trying to build the install files for my application under Eclipse.

It is also worth mentioning that the current tar task manual states that there
is a posix option for version 1.8.4, what isn't true:

To circumvent this issue I changed my build file to use zip instead of tar, but
tar is preferable due to the ability of setting file permissions in the build
