Details

An updated perl-Archive-Tar package that fixes a bug is now available.

The Archive::Tar module provides a mechanism for Perl scripts to manipulate tar
archive files.

This updated perl-Archive-Tar package fixes the following bug:

* when using the Archive::Tar Perl module, when the $VERSION variable was
referenced, a warning message similar to the following was printed to standard
output:

Argument "1.39_01" isn't numeric in subroutine entry at -e line 1.

This was caused by the presence of an underscore in the $VERSION variable. With
this update, the Archive::Tar module no longer outputs this warning message.
(BZ#614492)

Note: this regression was caused by a change to the module's version number, and
was introduced by the RHSA-2010:0505 perl-Archive-Tar security update.

All users of perl-Archive-Tar are advised to upgrade to this updated package,
which corrects this issue. All applications using the Archive::Tar module must
be restarted for this update to take effect.
