i am running Perl v5.16.3 under Win10 1709 Enterprise ( and got some strange behavior with symlinks. If i create a file and create symmlink (mklink <symlink_name> <target>) of it, the symlink is valid and shown as symlink in Windows Explorer with 0 byte size. If i open the link with notepad it will open the linked text file - so everything ok with the symlink.
If i now create a Zip with Archive-Zip (1.64) both elements are zipped, but the link is zipped as 0 byte file nor as a link.
If i do the same with Archive::Zip::SimpleZip the link is compressed as a copy of the file.
Thx for your help.
