- Subject: cp, install, and the .exe extension
This is a bug in the fileutils packaging (I think).
Recently I noticed that "install" has special handling for the .exe
extension, and "cp" does not. In the fileutils source tarball
I notice there are three files:
copy.c copy.c.cgf copy.c.orig
If I replace "copy.c" with either of the other two and rebuild, I get a
"cp" which *does* have special handling for the .exe extension.
Did the fileutils maintainer just forget to do this?
Incidentally, the Cygwin User's Guide specifically claims that "install"
won't handle the .exe extension; but currently it does.
