TARTEST(1)			      Schily's USER COMMANDS			       TARTEST(1)

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.

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.
