in thread tar from another server

You may need to be careful about which version of tar is running on the remote host, and which version is running locally. If they're different (e.g. remote host uses a native solaris version, localhost uses gnu version, or whatever), this might cause the sort of problem you observed.

Apart from that, does the local host get most of the content that you were hoping for? Can you isolate the particular file(s) that didn't get unpacked locally? (If, God forbid, one of the machines involved is using Microsoft text-mode semantics on the data transfer, that is bound to kill it prematurely.)

[LanX]: $; exists, so does the glob
[GotToBTru]: $; is "useful for emulating multi-dimensional arrays in Perl4"
[LanX]: i.e. &; is parsable
[LanX]: it's sometimes useful in P5 too
[LanX]: but I don't understand the question...
[GotToBTru]: okay, I see what it does
[GotToBTru]: you;ve answered it .. the expression is meant to be evaluated as written, it is not a symbol for a special operation
[LanX]: '&;@' is a parsing error
[GotToBTru]: by itself, yes, but used in sub pre(&;@) not so
[LanX]: &; is interpreted as a function call, but the @ has no meaning
