Bug #19661 addModify is very slow in a loop
Submitted: 2012-10-22 02:23 UTC

Description: ------------ $tar = new Archive_Tar($destination, true); $count = 0; foreach ($valid_files as $first) { $prefix = substr ($first, 0, (strrpos ($first, '/')+1)); $tar->addModify ($first, '', $prefix); $count++; echo "count = ".$count." prefix = ".$prefix." <br/>"; } Expected result: ---------------- I am expecting a tar file by the name $destination Actual result: -------------- I have 188 files to tar and this loop is painfully slow. It takes a long time to create the tar file. Is there anything wrong with the way I have written the code?

Passing an array instead of individual filenames into addModify() is quite a bit faster :)
