[PATCH] Update Archive::Tar to 1.42
Message ID:

attached is the patch to update Archive::Tar to 1.42. Previously, the
file t/99_pod.t has been removed afterwards, only to be re-included in
a later patch. For clarity, this test is skipped under PERL_CORE:

   plan skip_all => "Pod tests disabled under perl core" if $ENV 

However, patch generation (and completeness) is much easier if we can  
all test files from the CPAN distribution into core. So if there's no  
please apply the attached patch including the t/99_pod.t section.

Below is the changelog for this release, which includes patches for  
the VMS
