Unable to extract a file larger than 8GB from a Posix-format tar archive
------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: COMPRESS-163
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COMPRESS-163
             Project: Commons Compress
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Compressors
    Affects Versions: 1.3
         Environment: The tar archive used for testing was created by GNU tar, but the problem
will occur with any Posix-formatted tar file containing files over 8GB in size.
            Reporter: John Kodis
            Priority: Minor
             Fix For: 1.3


An attempt to read a posix-format tar archive containing a file in excess of 8^11 bytes in
size will fail with a "Size out of range" illegal argument exception.
