ok...the good old legacy...:)

Well - then I have a "problem"...

I wanted to use zip in the first place, but under unix when I unzip the
result the directory is not given permissions that allow me to change to
it, thus I wanted to use tar combined with gz...

The problem is in short as follows:
e.g. ant has created and I want to unpack it:

...<lots of files being packed out>...
cd thezipfiledirectory/
bash: thezipfiledirectory/: Permission denied

To enter it I have to do a chmod 755 -R thezipfiledirectory

Is there a way to instruct zip to NOT generate a file what that has this
limitation ?
