Subject Re: bug in compress library
Date Thu, 23 Mar 2006 21:56:52 GMT
Hi Henri,

No problem. But in the meantime, I've moved on to using C++ for reading
the tar files. I figured out the format and wrote my own code. It turned
out not to be that hard and I can read most of my tar files now very
fast.

I forward this mail to the commons list without subscribing. I hope it
doesn't bounce.

Cheers,
Jos
