Subject: file symlinks where zipped as 0 byte file instead as link or as copy of file
Date: Wed, 3 Jul 2019 07:21:54 +0200
To: bug-Archive-Zip@rt.cpan.org
From: Jan Bottek <jan.bottek@gmail.com>
Hi,

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.

Kind regards

Jan
