Trailing whitespace is stripped from file names during extraction. To reproduce, create tar containing file with trailing whitespace: Show quoted text
> mkdir test > echo foo >test/"space_after " > tar cvf test.tar testtest/ test/space_after Program to extract (a.pl): #!/usr/bin/env perl use Archive::Tar; my $tar = Archive::Tar->new; $tar->read("test.tar"); $tar->extract(); Extract using a.pl: Show quoted text
> a.pl > mv test test.bak > a.pl > diff -r test test.bakOnly in test: space_after Only in test.bak: space_after The extracted "space_after " will be created as "space_after". I believe this can be fixed by changing name from A100 to Z100 in the Archive::Tar::File unpack string. Haven't tested, but A155 prefix field is likely also a problem and possibly uname/gname (OSX can have spaces in group name although not sure if they can be trailing).
