Re: [Axiom-developer] Upper and lower case problems

Mac OS X has the same problem with file names (it treats all filenames case
insensitively), even though it keeps the case. In the same subdirectory, OS X
will overwrite say makefile with Makefile. One way to keep the case correctly is
to use tar. I used Virtual PC on the Mac, so the problem is similar to Keith's
running VMWare on Windows XP. By downloading a tar (or compressed tar) version
in the host OS, it can be imported (or mounted after tar -x) to the guest OS
with no loss of information.

One way to resolve this would be to separate the lower case and upper case files
in separate subdirectories in distribution. I noticed the same problem with
hyperdoc files in the NAG distribution.
