Archive::Tar version: 2.04 Perl version: v5.18.2 - built for darwin-thread-multi-2level (Mac OS 10.10) When creating a hardlink and setting $tar->setcwd() but staying in the current working directory, hardlinks fail to be created. I've attached a script to illustrate ( I added a few print statements to Archive::Tar and it's calling link() like this (note the relative directory in the first argument): link("untar_bug2/my/path/file.txt", "/tmp/untar_dir2/untar_bug2/my/path/OneMoreSub/file.txt") in the invoking directory (~/src), not the tar directory (/tmp/untar_bug2) if I print $! I get: No such file or directory. ERROR: Making hard link from 'untar_bug2/my/path/file.txt' to '/tmp/untar_dir2/untar_bug2/my/path/OneMoreSub/file.txt' failed at /Library/Perl/5.18/Archive/ line 953.
