    I've seen it too, and AFAIK, its probably the dev tarball from http://makemaker.org

    though the latest version is ExtUtils-MakeMaker-6.63_02/

    Er, yes it does. On my machine.

    Full console log:

    And so do all of the last 6 versions.

      Oh yeah, that is a problem with your version of tar/gunzip from http://unxutils.sourceforge.net/

      I had some similar problems with tar from http://gnuwin32.sf.net

      today I'm sucessfully using tar -zxvf from mingw

      $ tar --version tar (GNU tar) 1.23

      though I have successfully used ptar

      FWIW, as Anonymous Monk I really dislike your usage of spoiler tags instead of readmore tags

        FWIW, as Anonymous Monk I really dislike your usage of spoiler tags instead of readmore tags

        Could you explain why?

        I prefer spoilers to readmores because readmores expand automatically whenever anyone views the post.

        • For the casual viewer, this means they download and are forced to view a crap load of information they neither need nor want to view.
        • Anything posted after the readmore is pushed way down the screen, and in many cases will never be seen.

        Spoilers on the other hand allow:

        • the viewer to read the entire post minus the long boring details without scrolling.
        • The casual viewer never needs download, much less read or have to skip over the content.
        • The interested viewer to take in the overall flow and gist of the post *before* choosing whether to view the details.

        I cannot think of any purpose for which readmores are preferable to spoilers.

      Wow ... something weird going on there. If I grab http://search.cpan.org/CPAN/authors/id/M/MS/MSCHWERN/ExtUtils-MakeMaker-6.62.tar.gz by clicking on that link (in the browser), then gzip -d and tar xvf the file, it unwraps into a directory named 'ExtUtils-MakeMaker-6.62' (as expected).

      I think that's the same tarball as wget fetched for you ... so we're left to ponder what's making the difference.
      Is it something that wget does ? or gunzip ? or tar ?

      It's hard to believe that wget could be the culprit ... more likely something that your gunzip or tar is doing.
      And if it's only EU::MM that's afflicted with this condition (and not other source tarballs from CPAN), then it's even more mysterious - and, of course, indicative of there being something unique about the way Schwern bundles up his source tarballs.

      Cheers,
      Rob
        I think that's the same tarball as wget fetched for you ...

        It is exactly the same file as identified by the md5sum.

        more likely something that your gunzip or tar is doing.

        It seems to be something to do with the version of the tar used by the distribution builder that is incompatible with older versions of tar when it comes to untarring.

        As I've now discovered ptar -- it successfully unpacks the very same file that gave me troubles -- and that it is installed with Perl, I'll use that in future. Indeed, I've renamed tar.exe to tar.exe.old and copied ptar.bat to tar.cmd so that if I should forget, I won't have to spend hours working out which files and directories I need to delete as I did this time.
