tarfile module for version 2.2.3

Discussion in 'Python' started by Antoon Pardon, Aug 24, 2007.

  1. I have to write a little program that has to run on a number of hosts.
    Versions of python range from 2.2.3. to 2.4.2.

    The easiest way to implement the necessary behaviour seems to me to
    use the tarfile module. However that was only introduced in 2.3
    I had a look in the code and at first sight couldn't find anything
    that would cause problems if I used this module with python 2.2.3.

    Could someone confirm that the tarmodule is compatible with python 2.2.
    I will try some tests myself but it would be nice to have confirmation
    from elsewhere.

    Try also the test suite (Lib/test/test_tarfile.py).
