Schily's USER COMMANDS TARTEST(1)
tartest - test tar archive for POSIX.1-1990 compliance
tartest [ options ] < file
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.
Print a short help message.
-v print all filenames during verification.
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
