  • The file isn't a tar.gz:

    tony@develop-help:~$ tar tzf /mnt/hdc2/ftp/pub/cpan/authors/id/S/SK/SKUD/MasonX-StaticBuilder-0.01.tar.gz

    gzip: stdin: not in gzip format
    tar: Child returned status 1
    tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors
    tony@develop-help:~$ file /mnt/hdc2/ftp/pub/cpan/authors/id/S/SK/SKUD/MasonX-StaticBuilder-0.01.tar.gz
    /mnt/hdc2/ftp/pub/cpan/authors/id/S/SK/SKUD/MasonX-StaticBuilder-0.01.tar.gz: HTML document text

    From looking at it, you've got some sort of HTML wrapper around the actual .tar.gz file.

    • Ha! OK, that explains it. It's convoluted and stupid but I know what happened. I was working on the modules over on my hosted server, and rather than do the file upload to PAUSE as I usually do, I chucked the files in a web-accessible tmp directory and pointed PAUSE at the URL. But around that time, I'd screwed with HTML::Mason on my website to tell it to handle all files except those explicitly excluded. I excluded JPGs and CSS and crap like that, but I probably didn't explicitly exclude tarballs. So
