Subject Tar task not handling symbolic links?
Date Mon, 15 Jan 2001 16:44:16 GMT
Hi Ant users,

I had to experience, that the Tar task obviously does not support symbolic
links. I just read that the missing of file permissions is a Java thing -
is it the same with symlinks?

Calling the system's tar via <exec> is not very useful in my current
project, as I need the "includesfile" functionality. 

I'm using JDK 1.2.2 on Linux 2.2.16.

Can anyone help?

Thank you,
