Subject [COMPRESS]tar 2Gb limit?
Date Fri, 07 Jan 2011 01:52:06 GMT
Hi

While reading the user doc for the commons compress project -
http://commons.apache.org/compress/examples.html

Under tar section, it says -

The tar package does not support the full POSIX tar standard nor more
modern GNU extension of said standard. It cannot deal with entries
larger than 2 GByte either.

I wonder if this is still a limitation or should the limitation
changed to 8 GB instead of 2 GB.  The reason I am asking is that I saw
a link that suggested someone complaining having probs with 10GB -
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COMPRESS-16

Thanks much

Lin
