Subject: Tarball cannot be extracted with Archive::Tar
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 2.2k
It seems that the tarball cannot be extracted with Archive::Tar. Doing so results in a lot of checksum errors, see below. Note that CPAN.pm may be configured to use Archive::Tar instead of the external tar (e.g. for systems without a native tar like Windows). Checksum for /home/cpansand/.cpan/sources/authors/id/W/WI/WINTRU/Carrot-1.1.308.tar.gz ok CPAN: Archive::Tar loaded ok (v2.00) 129 path=Carrot-1.1.308/lib/Carrot/Individuality/Controlled/Localized_Messages/Universal./localized_: checksum error at /usr/perl5.20.0/lib/5.20.0/CPAN/Tarzip.pm line 377.

Thank you for your interest in Carrot and your effort to report a bug. I was able to reproduce the problem using a small script. As a consequence I used bsdtar to pack 1.1.309. Bsdtar is compatible with Archive::Tar. However, in case you are running Perl under Windows, take note that Carrot hasn't been tested on anything but Linux x86, yet. It depends on $ENV{'HOME'} and / as a file name separator. The global constant OS_FS_PATH_DELIMITER has been introduced some time ago, but isn't used in all places where file names are processed. Chances are that the current release of Carrot won't work under anything but Linux or Unix. The 1.1 series consists of alpha releases only. Regards -W.
