For a program I am writing, I need to know what different tars do when the
archive has names that are too long. Suppose I make a tar on my BSD system and
I give it to you, and you have a SysV system (or whatever). What happens with
too long file names? As file or as directory element in the path?
Can anybody tell me what GNU tar does on SysV systems?
