Hi, I have small question on the usage of gtar, so
I appreciate it very much if you could reply me with
some answer.

I am trying to extract symlinks as symlink with same
creation time as original from a tar archive. But, I always
get the creation time updated to a time of extraction.
Actually, I see a creation time is preserved in tar archive itself.

Is there any way to realize this inside gtar or outside gtar
after extraction on UNIX (Solaris) ?

My gnu tar version is below.
tar (GNU tar) 1.12

I appreciate your help.

Best Regards,
