SYNOPSIS

tartest [ options ] < file

DESCRIPTION

Tartest reads a tar archive from stdin and checks this archive for compliance with POSIX.1-1990.

OPTIONS

All options can be abbreviated by their first letter.
-help Print a short help message.
-v print all filenames during verification.

ENVIRONMENT

none

FILES

none

NOTES

As tartest is limited to tests the data that is delivered by the tar archiver that is going to be checked, it cannot tests if the tar archiver in question will produce correct archives under all circumstances. There may be borderline cases that trigger bugs in the tar archiver.

If you like to to a more complete test, you should have a look at the file READE.quicktest in the directory testscripts of either the star distribution or the ftp server.
