Re: bash: more: command not found

Let's keep official Cygwin discussions on the list.  Believe it or not, others
may have your same problem and actually search the mail list archives to find
a solution.

Sorry.  You assume too much.  'more' is indeed a package, albeit a new one.  
If it's not an option for you, you're using a mirror that hasn't been updated
with it yet.  See for the full list of available
packages for Cygwin and use it to determine what package your favorite 
utilities are in.  This is a common request, which is why this page exists.
There's also an FAQ entry pertaining to the question of where to find 'more',
although it's not complete anymore with the addition of the 'more' package.

David (Starks-Browning), would it be worthwhile to add the "How do I find out 
what package utility XXX is in?" to the FAQ?
