Thanks for the info!
See the third iteration. The first list included about 160 items, the
second ~190, and the current list is up to 266.
That includes shell scripts and symlinks, but I assume what you really
want to know is "what commands can I run", not "which PE format
executable files exist."
None of these lists include shell builtins. That list will depend on
the shell you choose to run.
Hmm, the online package listing for base doesn't list the executables
it comes with.
"Base" is a category in the Cygwin package respository system.
"cygwin-base" is just one of the packages in the Base category.
Would it make sense to add this information to the online docs?
I'll consider it.
Where would you expect to find the info? I have my own idea, but I want
to know where you would have gone looking first.
