Subject: Tarball permission error (0.71)
The contents of the PDF-API2-0.71.tar.gz tarball have wrong permissions: $ tar tfvz /usr/local/src/CPAN/sources/authors/id/A/AR/AREIBENS/PDF-API2-0.71.tar.gz drw-rw-rw- 0 fredo 0 0 Aug 10 16:50 PDF-API2-0.71/ ... The directories in the tarball are missing the x bit, which is necessary so the created directory could be entered at all. This means installing the distribution on Unix systems is not possible without fixing the permissions manually. Usually this type of problem does not occur if the distribution was created using the standard "make dist" makefile rule. Regards, Slaven

the distro has been created with "nmake dist" using: Windows XP ActiveState perl, v5.10.0 built for MSWin32-x86-multi-thread GnuWin32 Tar GnuWin32 Gzip cheers, -- fredo
