My question is how do I get an archive of what cygwin packages I have

sed -n -e '2,$s/ .*$//p' /etc/setup/installed.db

or to feed into setup.exe -P

sed -n -e '2,$s/ .*$//p' /etc/setup/installed.db | tr '\n' , | sed -e 's/,$/\n/'
Is there some reason why you wouldn't just use cygcheck for this?


Ken: /etc/setup/installed.db is exactly what I was looking for, thanks

Barry: Thanks for sed suggestions, makes for a cleaner list of info (which matches my need of "an ascii record" of what I've installed)

Chris: I didn't know about cygcheck and had blinders on during my search as I was looking for a data file rather than a utility. Just read the docs, test drove it per docs, and its definitely better than what I was originally looking for. Thanks!
