Archive::Extract falls back to an alternate implementation (ie, if no perl module was found, use a binary and vice versa). For testing purposes, this is not ideal; as of version 0.28 it tests both implementations specifically, so we're probably seeing a failure here that was masked before. Looking at the failures, it seems the issue is with your /bin/tar program: what version are you using of that? Also, extra diagnostics would be useful. You can obtain them by running the test as follows: $ perl -Ilib t/01_Archive-Extract.t 1 The trailing '1' enables debug output for the test suite. Cheers,

GNU tar 1.21 via Cygwin. If I use plain cmd.exe, there's no tar command in the PATH and the tests pass. Show quoted text

Thanks for the diagnostics, they helped me figure out the issue. I was able to reproduce it on my Win32 virtual machine, and it's specific to gnu tar under cygwin being passed a win32 (as opposed to unix) file path. From the changelog of 0.31_01: Changes for 0.31_01 Fri Feb 6 15:39:13 2009 ============================================ * Address #40138; .tar files on Win32 would not extract properly with gnu tar (default on cygwin) under Cmd.exe/Native Win32 system calls. Gnu tar interprets file names with a : in them, like C:\tmp\foo.tar as a remote path, and attempts to execute rsh instead. Archive::Extract now checks for gnu tar on Win32 and adds the '--force-local' flag to disable this behaviour. This should fix your issue. Please feel free to test it and leave any feedback in this bug report. Thanks again,
