Stefan Bodewig commented on COMPRESS-165:
-----------------------------------------

PAX headers are in with svn revision 1211931 - only need to add docs to resolve this.

> We already parse PAX headers and the star/GNU tar/BSD tar dialects used for big
> entries.
> Similar to the way we handle long file names there should be a user option to chose
> between "error", "star" and "posix" or "pax".  "star" is Jörg Schilling's tar which
was the
> first one to use the binary size representation later adopted by GNU and BSD tar as well.
