- Subject: Three questions
Hello, I have three questions that aren't related.
First: Is there a cygwin package that will let me compare two binary files
to see if they are equal?
Second: Is there a way to prevent gcc from adding .exe extension when
building programs? I recall hearing something that win98 needs the .exe, but
I can launch programs from within Cygwin under Windows XP Pro just fine
without the extension so if I could get GCC not to add this extension it'd
be great. The reason I want this is that I have to rewrite my Makefiles when
moving projects to-and-from cygwin-fedora.
Third: I tried removing an the .exe-extension from a file by issuing:
$ mv tiny_mdi_example_without_ggdb.exe tiny_mdi_example_without_ggdb
The error I got was:
mv: `tiny_mdi_example_without_ggdb.exe' and `tiny_mdi_example_without_ggdb'
are the same file
So I used Explorer to do it, but I'd like to know how I should get mv to do
Thanks for any replies and may the year 2005 be a prosperous year for you
