Subject: examples/zipcheck.pl may create stray symlinks
If a zip archive contains symlinks, and is checked with examples/zipcheck.pl, then the current directory afterwards contains entries like lrwxrwxrwx 1 eserte eserte 3 Sep 17 23:00 IO::File=GLOB(0x2cbeb68) -> bla Alternatively, if the current directory does not have write permissions for the user, an error message IO error: creating symbolic link : Permission denied appears. Probably extractToFileHandle should be skipped if the member is a symlink, or handled differently (e.g. create a test symlink in a temporary directory)?
