* important changes in version 0.99_02 26/3/2003:

Added options to be passed to read, namely:
        - extract (to extract while reading)
        - limit (to limit the amount of files read from the archive)

Implemented the '././@LongLink' support, which is GNU's way of
dealing with filenames that are longer than 255 chars.

Added a global variable $WARN which controls whether warnings get
printed or just stored.

Fixed a few small bugs that considered files named '0' or '' to not
really be files and refuse to package them.

	-Jos Perl Programming lists via nntp and http.
