Hello! Sorry for my poor English. I use Archive::Tar in cross-platform perl program for Linux/GNU and Win32 platform. On Linux/GNU I use UTF-8 codepage for filenames. I must use cp1251(cyrylic codepage for Windows) on Win32 platform . When I create tar-archive and add to archive non-latin filenames on Win32 platform, I can untar it but only with broken filenames... How I can resolve this problem? May be I can add to archive codepage and use it while untar archive. May be I can set codepage for filenames while untaring or taring. I use in my program only utf-8 data format. May be I can add files with encoded(to utf-8) filenames? Alexander Mishchenko
