Subject: Properly extract symbolic links (proposed patch included)
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 823b
Archives which are created with the "zip -y" command (thus preserving symbolic links, as opposed to following them and including the destination file) are not currently (version 1.18) properly extracted by Archive::Zip. Instead of the symbolic link, Archive::Zip creates a file that contains the name of the link destination. The attached patch fixes this problem. However, it would probably be a good idea to also include a configuration directive (which defaults to off), enabling the extraction of symlinks, otherwise users can unknowingly create security holes when unzipping malicious archives. I wasn't sure how best to add this to the existing interface, which is why I didn't add it in the patch. Also, the patch probably breaks on Window systems (don't have one so can't test that :-)

Trying to clean up some RT tickets here. Is this still an issue? Does the latest revision fix the problem?
