title="tarfile doesn't detect disk full error on extraction"updated_at=<Date2009-12-13.11:50:06.740>user='https://bugs.python.org/eliv'
tarfile doesn't seem to return any error or raise any exception when an
extraction fills up the disk, making it hard to use safely. Both
extractall and extract suffer from this problem. I'm using CentOS 5.2
and python 2.6.2.
I quote: "If errorlevel is 0, all errors are ignored when using
TarFile.extract(). Nevertheless, they appear as error messages in the
debug output, when debugging is enabled. If 1, all fatal errors are
raised as OSError or IOError exceptions. If 2, all non-fatal errors are
raised as TarError exceptions as well."
I changed the default value for the errorlevel argument, so that fatal
errors are now raised as regular exceptions by default (trunk: r76780,
py3k: r76782). Thank you very much for bringing up this issue.
