Very nice review; I am surprised that it has not been upvoted more
(perhaps because, as you point out, there's not much demand by the userbase for tar functionality in Perl).
Your post could well be considered a template for quality review posts here at PM.
Here's why:

-you explained why the module could be useful
-you gave us a good idea of what the features of the module are
-you gave us example code using the module
-you listed weaknesses of and potential pitfalls in using the module
-you gave us information about the tar file format that would be useful on any platform
-you finished with a nice summation of the applicability of this module

I learned a lot here...thanks.

Scott

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
