Assume I get to another (Windows) computer where Cygwin is already installed.
How can I find out which version of Cygwin is currently installed?
cygcheck --version # for cygwin dll
cygcheck --check-setup # for all packages
To do a check of all installed packages, the second option is really the
only choice. But if you're just looking for version of the Cygwin DLL,
"uname -r" is an alternative to the first option that is a bit more
UNIXy/Linuxy. As such, it may be preferable if you're checking this in a
script that is meant to be cross-platform.
