I'm gnu-tarring files with tar version 1.13.25
on solaris, then untarring with the same version
on cygwin. The files are dated 2002-12-31 18:09:xx
in the tgz on solaris. When I sftp them to cygwin,
the tar programs shows the files to be dated
2003-01-01 03:09.xx. But typing "date" at the
cygwin prompt shows the computer clock to be right
i.e. Tue Dec. 31 2002.
It was the time zone not set right on the PC.
Didn't know gnu tar was made to compensate
for time zones......
