Re: New versions of bzip2 and patch?

Just found this thread here....

O.K. you all found me busy with other work 8-(, sorry for that.

patch is in very good condition, I have been sitting on thins patch
(well, actually been using it) for months and the changes I made to the
code are very straightforward. I will release this asap. 

bzip2 perhaps might be the cause of some trouble, at least my version,
perhaps not Chuck's one. (They are the same source-code but compiled
with different versions of gcc/binutils/etc. I used to use a freshly
installed version fron sourceware of complete cygwin and Chuck used the
version on his pc; his version seemed to work fine, mine made objdump
stackdump and an application linked with (at least my version of) bzip2
had corrupted debug-information in it.

I promised Chuck to try to reproduce the problem with his version but I
did not find the time to do so till now.

Neither do I; I have the problem of a real job sometimes eating me

Only man-files, no info files.
