|Subject:||Feature request: skip setting permissions|
When extracting an archive to a non-Unix filesystem (for example a FAT filesystem or a Windows file share mounted from Linux), the chmod() calls fail. It would be useful to have an option to skip doing chmod() and just leave the default permissions. Otherwise, you can't use Archive::Zip on such filesystems. The question is how to present that interface - should it be a package variable $Archive::Zip::No_chmod or perhaps an extra parameter passed to extractTree and similar methods? If you like the idea, I could write a patch.
