I've uploaded an experimental version 6.15.00-3 of tcsh to cygwin.com.
This version is supposed to solve problems with DOS lineendings when
using tcsh as login shell. A typical problem are broken or hanging
rsync calls with tcsh as (remote) login shell.
The problem is that Cygwin's tcsh is using textmode on input so far.
This experimental version drops all changes to the underlying mode.
Instead, CR's on input are ignored when reading commands.
I'd like to ask other tcsh users to try this version. It would be
helpful to get some feedback.
You can distinguish this version from the stable tcsh by its version
string. -3 adds a "Cygwin-CRLF-test-01" string to the capabilites.
$ echo $version
tcsh 6.15.00 (Astron) 2007-03-03 (i386-intel-posix) options 8b,nls,dl,al,kan,rh,color,dspm
$ echo $version
tcsh 6.15.00 (Astron) 2007-03-03 (i386-intel-posix) options 8b,nls,dl,al,kan,rh,color,dspm,Cygwin-CRLF-test-01
If this change doesn't break too much, I'll send the patch upstream
and this change will go into the stable release.
To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on
the http://cygwin.com/ web page. This downloads setup.exe to your
system. Save it and run setup, answer the questions, then look for
'tcsh' in the 'Shells' category. Since this is an experimental release,
you will need to use the 'Exp' radio button.
If you have general questions or comments, please send them to the
Cygwin mailing list at: "cygwin at cygwin dot com". I would appreciate
it if you would use this mailing list rather than emailing me directly.
