Hi Mark,

thanks for your answer. I am not sure how i can set that flag for Linux under Mac OS X.

Using a "ls -al" on Mac OS X i can see that it has already the executable flag set. But when i
compress it with tar and move it to Linux and untar it, then flag is not set anymore.

Regards,

Matthias
