[jira] [Commented] (COMPRESS-117) Certain tar files won't open

AD_LB (Jira)

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COMPRESS-117?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13010084#comment-13010084 ]

Sebb commented on COMPRESS-117:
-------------------------------

The tar file has no identifying magic string, which is what the matcher is looking for.
What was used to create it?

The file can be read OK with TarArchiveInputStream; the only minor issue is that the file is not auto-recognised.

As a work-round, you could use ArchiveStreamFactory.createArchiveInputStream(String archiverName, InputStream in) to create the reader from the file extension.

> 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.
