Dear All,

The files bin/{dmd,objdump,obj2asm} are not executable when dmd.zip is unzipped
under Linux, so running `dmd' produces as `Permission denied' error.
I recommend using the Linux `zip' utility to create dmd.zip, so the ZIP file
will preserve the file attributes (chmod +x) of the programs.

I suggest using tar.gz as it is the usual format on linux:
 tar zcvf dmd.tar.gz dmd

produces dmd.tar.gz archive from the directory dmd.
 tar zxvf dmd.tar.gz 

unpacks the archive -Antti
