in thread Identical Files to Symbolic Links

The only reason why there are symbolic and not hard links, is that I assume(!), that hardlinks make problems when you tar the fileset.

In our application, a lot of files is generated, then this dupe-eliminator rushes over it, then the result is tarballed and moved to production server. I would not want to untar copies instead of references there.
