I created this section - DRAFT - a long time ago. But I am finding time is scarce - and I am looking for way to determine which area I am researching is actually of real interest - versus "idle interest" (or no interest).
I shall start with writing a "draft" of something I am working on/with - that would otherwise stay as personal use only. I would not call it an "abstract" - as an abstract is actually a bit more "finished" than what I consider a "draft".
My hope is that - using twitter - even better (for me) - respond in the forums.
Q. What is the maximum support file size for AIX tar?
A. AIX 6.1 TL9 and later - "unlimited" aka 2^^64-1. Before that 8GB
From the AIX 6.1 TL9 man page for tar
The ustar header format allows file sizes up to 8 GB in IBM AIX 6 with Technology Level 9, or earlier
releases. In IBM AIX 6 with Technology Level 9, or later releases, this size is unlimited (2^64 -1).
