Subject [jira] [Commented] (FLEX-38) Build script requires sh on Windows
Date Wed, 04 Apr 2012 15:47:25 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLEX-38?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13246380#comment-13246380

Carol Frampton commented on FLEX-38:
------------------------------------

Ok, I see why rather than using <untar>s, <exec>s of the shell command, untar,
 where used.

Ant's untar task can't handle symlinks which as far as I can tell has been a long standing
issue.

Now I don't know whether the build engineer who wrote most of these scripts figured out whether
each tar file had symlinks in it or just always used the shell command to be safe.

> There is a call to sh with automatically generated shell script that was used to untar
the AIR archive. On Windows it wouldn't work and on Linux it would unpack with the permissions
given to the user of the terminal, rather then the permissions given to Ant user (files created
would be protected for Ant script later).
