Subject UTF8 filename issue with TarOutputStream
Date Sun, 02 Sep 2012 09:26:07 GMT

I have raised a bug with TarOutputStream when a TAR file is being written,
1. One or more filenames are so long that they require GNU mode
2. The platform encoding is UTF-8
3. Any character in a long filename results in a multibyte UTF-8 sequence

an exception is thrown:
"Problem creating TAR: request to write 'xxx' bytes exceeds size in header
of 'xxx' bytes"

the same has been discussed and solved in:

with the patch applied as well

bug id:

is there any chance of solving them in the next release.

  • Unnamed multipart/alternative (inline, None, 0 bytes)
