Module Version: 1.0   Source   Latest Release: Devel-CheckApplicationCapabilities-1.1

NAME ^

Devel::AssertApplicationCapabilities::TarMinusZ - check that a tar binary supports the GNU-ish -j argument, to handle bzip2'ed tarballs

BUGS/WARNINGS/LIMITATIONS ^

This is a heuristic. That means that it can be wrong. Bug reports are most welcome, and should include the output from 'cp --version' as well as, of course, telling me what the bug is.

The check is actually whether 'cp -al blah/foo blah/bar' results in two files with the same inode number, as well as whether cp looks GNU-ish.
