question with xargs and jar- seems to drop files.
I seem to have an odd problem with xargs and jar. I'm not sure if I can isolate a simple test
case but essentially it only seems to be taking some of the input files.
This seems to work suggesting the file list is acceptable to jar:
$ more latest65day | jar -@cvf wtf2.zip>jarlog2.txt
this, however, only includes a some files, apparently lopping off certain directories:
$ more latest65day | xargs jar -cvf wtf2.zip>jarlog.txt
$ xargs --version
GNU xargs version 4.3.8
Built using GNU gnulib version 2007-05-26
$ jar -V
jar (fastjar) 0.92-gcc

Thoughts on diagnostic process of known problems? At first, I thought it had to do with
errors encountered during the jarring but I think I've eliminated all of those ( missing files
mostly). Also, as I indicated before, my configuration is suspect but I wouldn't expect it
to cause problems like this.
