Subject [jira] Commented: (COMPRESS-107) ArchiveStreamFactory does not recognise tar files created by Ant
Date Sat, 08 May 2010 15:49:48 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COMPRESS-107?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12865476#action_12865476
] 

Sebb commented on COMPRESS-107:
-------------------------------

Ant 1.7.0 writes "ustar" (no trailing space or null) to the magic field, which it assumes
is 8 chars long.
It does not appear to write any version information.

So the "magic" for Ant tar files appears to be "ustar\0\0" with no following version information.

Unless there are better ideas, I propose to add that to the factory tar matching algorithm.

> ArchiveStreamFactory does not recognise tar files created by Ant.
> These appear to have magic of  "ustar\0" (i.e. same as MAGIC_POSIX) followed by "\0\0".
> Note that Compress can process the files OK.
> Patch to follow after checking what Ant writes as the signature.
