LIMITATIONS =========== Archive: - Wrong mtime, chown, chgrp for symlinks extracted from the archive. --> lchown, lchgrp are not (yet) implemented in PHP. --> Touch resolves the symlink. Tar: - Pax: Writing to archive is not implemented. - Gnu: Writing to archive is not implemented. Zip: - Text or binary-file bit is not set in the (created) archive. - Extracting of a file is done all in memory. --> Extracting a deflated file without a header is recently fixed in PHP. (Use string filter) - Check the bitflag, because it is now always 0. - We use the same version as InfoZip (10). - Files are always compressed with the deflate algorithm. --> Need to find out the best algorithm. E.g. no compression on small files or files that are already compressed. - Zip64 is not implemented. File: - Common functions from character and blockfile must be moved to ArchiveFile. Tests: - Some tests use executables: tar, gzip, bzip2 and will probably not work on other machines or platforms.
