Subject [jira] Created: (COMPRESS-117) Certain tar files won't open
Date Wed, 11 Aug 2010 00:15:16 GMT
Certain tar files won't open

                 Key: COMPRESS-117
             Project: Commons Compress
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Archivers
    Affects Versions: 1.0
         Environment: MS Windows Vista, NetBeans IDE
            Reporter: Leo Izen

Certain tar files, like this one: aren't
being recognized by the ArchiveInputStream detector.

I can open this tar file perfectly well with WinRAR and 7-zip. Neither of these complain.
I can also open it with the command tar -xvf. However, I narrowed it down, and it turns out
the TarArchiveInputStream.matches() is returning false, even though it is a valid tar file.
This glitch should be fixed.
