Subject [COMPRESS] Tar directory name format - append / ?
Date Mon, 10 May 2010 01:59:10 GMT
The SunOS version of tar has an "extended headers" -E option which is
intended for use with longer path names and larger file sizes.

The format of the tar file changes, as tar -E no longer appends a "/"
to directory names.

All other tar formats I've seen add "/" at the end of directory names.
This includes SunOS tar when used without the -E flag.

For consistency, I propose to append the "/" to directory names if
required when parsing a tar file.
