Subject [jira] [Commented] (FLEX-38) Build script requires sh on Windows
Date Fri, 04 May 2012 20:16:50 GMT


Oleg Sivokon commented on FLEX-38:

This is sort of a reminder:

them. -->

Please don't call sh like that - it doesn't do what you think it does on Linux. Also, you
don't need to copy the archive, tar will untar into current directory, not the archive directory
(this will win you some time, especially if you are doing this under Cygwin because the archive
is huge and copying it takes time).

Besides, the comment about symlinks is wrong - they would've been lost if you used Ant's <unbzip>
task, but they aren't lost with the present code.

> 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).
