Does setup.exe handle duplicate files correctly? To be explicit, if
more than one tar.gz archive contain a file with the same name, does
setup.exe install the correct one?
I am posing the above question because there appears to be a lot of
files in common between gdb-20000608.tar.gz and tcltk.tar.gz:
$ tar -xvzf gdb-20000608.tar.gz >/dev/null
$ tar -xvzf tcltk.tar.gz >/dev/null
tar: usr/lib/libtcl80.a: Could not create file: Permission denied
tar: usr/lib/libtk80.a: Could not create file: Permission denied
tar: usr/man/man1/itclsh.1: Could not create file: Permission denied
tar: usr/man/mann/Archetype.n: Could not create file: Permission denied
The reason that the dups were not previously apparent was because all
of the files in gdb-20000415.tar.gz were writeable.
