[jira] [Commented] (COMPRESS-117) Certain tar files not recognised by ArchiveStreamFactory

AD_LB (Jira)

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COMPRESS-117?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13010093#comment-13010093 ]

Sebb commented on COMPRESS-117:

One possible approach would be to check if the first entry parses OK, and if so, assume that it is a tar file.

This should be done in ArchiveStreamFactory, not TarArchiveInputStream.matches(), because matches() is a signature check only.

>         Environment: MS Windows Vista, NetBeans IDE
>            Reporter: Leo Izen

> Certain tar files, like this one: http://leo.scruffohio.net/cgi-bin/uploads/lzma912.tar aren't being recognized by the ArchiveInputStream detector.
> I can open this tar file perfectly well with WinRAR and 7-zip. Neither of these complain. I can also open it with the command tar -xvf. However, I narrowed it down, and it turns out the TarArchiveInputStream.matches() is returning false, even though it is a valid tar file. This glitch should be fixed.
