NAME

     tartest - test tar archive for POSIX.1-1990 compliance


SYNOPSIS

     tartest [ options ] < file


DESCRIPTION

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

     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.
