Re: [ANNOUNCEMENT] New package: busybox-1.23.2-1

Greetings, Christian Franke!

> The BusyBox multi-call binary is now available.


Love eternal.


> BusyBox combines tiny versions of many common utilities into a single 
> executable.

> Packages:
> busybox: busybox and symlinks for all supported functions installed in 
> /usr/libexec/busybox/bin.

> busybox-standalone: busybox compiled with 'standalone shell' feature 
> installed in /usr/libexec/busybox-standalone/bin.

> busybox-doc: man page and documentation files.

> The busybox and busybox-standalone packages install a symlink to 
> busybox.exe in /usr/bin with alternatives(8). If both packages are 
> installed, the non-standalone version takes precedence.

> All configuration options which work on Cygwin are enabled. The included 
> 'ash' shell provides reasonable support for interactive usage (command 
> line editing, history search, job control, fancy prompts, aliases, ...).

> A tiny version of Cygwin could be created by copying 
> /usr/libexec/busybox{,-standalone} tree and adding cygwin1.dll to .../bin.

> See the /usr/share/doc/Cygwin/busybox.README file for usage examples and 
> further info.

> Supported functions:

> $ busybox
> BusyBox v1.23.2 (2015-07-05 18:51:40 CEST) multi-call binary.
> BusyBox is copyrighted by many authors between 1998-2012.
> Licensed under GPLv2. See source distribution for detailed
> copyright notices.

>   Usage: busybox [function [arguments]...]
>      or: busybox --list[-full]
>      or: busybox --install [-s] [DIR]
>      or: function [arguments]...

>      BusyBox is a multi-call binary that combines many common Unix
>      utilities into a single executable.  Most people will create a
>      link to busybox for each function they wish to use and BusyBox
>      will act like whatever it was invoked as.
