- Subject: UNZIP: Why don't .exe/.dll files get eXecute privs?
Something has been bugging me about Cygwin UNZIP for years. When I
unzip a file, the extracted .exe and .dll files no longer have execute
privs. I have to manually chmod +x them. This always occurs when I'm
in a DOS prompt and using the Cygwin unzip.
The same unzip from http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net doesn't have this problem.
Why is Cygwin different?
Thanks - Jim
