Re: mkdir under Win98


By checking my script, I have just realized that
the strange behaviour comes from somewhereelse:

let us assume that dummy.tar.gz is an archive file of the directory
`dummy',
if I do under Win98:
1] mkdir -p dum
2] ln -s dum dummy
3] tar -zvxf FOO/dummy.tar.gz

then the directory dum is removed.

The step 3] worked fine a few months ago.

To quickly fix it, I do:
3p] tar -kzvxf FOO/dummy.tar.gz

Did I miss something ?

Thanks inadvance,
Jerome BENOIT
