in reply to Issue with Archive::Tar

It rather looks to me as tho' you're writing before there's anything there i.e.
$tar->write('Test2.tbz', COMPRESS_BZIP); $tar->add_files(@files);
should be
$tar->add_files(@files); $tar->write('Test2.tbz', COMPRESS_BZIP);
Referring to Archive::Tar, we see that add_files() only adds files to the in-memory object i.e. not to any file that may have been written using write() ... unless, of course, it's nealry beer o'clock on Friday afternoon and I've missed something even more elementary :-)

    Knew I was overlooking the obvious.


      Not a problem dracos, we all do it ... and I defy anybody to say they don't :-)
