Download English version of documentation has multiple broken links in the html chunked version. Online documentation is not affected. ALL of the broken links resolve to html files that have an underscore (_) prepended to the actual file name.

After testing ALL of the broken links, it has been determined that ALL of the html files that have a leading underscore need to have the underscore removed.  This results in ALL of the broken links to be fixed. There is a one-to-one correlation with the file names having a leading (_) and the broken links.

un-tar the file. In the php-chunked-xhtml folder, several .html files have an (_) prepended to the filename.  These _'s are causing the broken links.

There are no files in the tarball at that URL, at present, whose filenames start with an underscore. 

If you download the tarball and list its contents without un-tarring (e.g using "tar -zvtf php_manual_en.tar.gz") does it show these files?  

Without more details or the ability to reproduce the problem, I am unable to assist further.

I am sending a screenshot of what I just un-tared on windows platform to your email.  All files are in this screenshot.

I see no files with leading underscores either, when untarring
with 7-zip or Window's tar (bsdtar 3.3.2 - libarchive 3.3.2
zlib/1.2.5.f-ipp).  Which program do you use to untar?

The problem was with the zip/tar package that I am using, Express Zip v7.23. If I explored the archive in the Express Zip application, all was well.  However if I expanded the archive directly without opening the GUI, the noted problem existed.

The newer version of Express Zip v8.24 does not have the problem.  Sorry for the distraction.
