The cygcheck -p option is a great tool.
Although, I noticed today a number of problems in using it today along
with the package search function at Cygwin.com.
I also rummaged around one of the mirror FTP sites to see if I could
find a text file that was the logical equivalent of a single directory
listing for all the directories *and* archives in the 'release/'
directory. This must be the logical basis for both 'cygcheck -p' and the
Note that setup.ini has insufficient detail about the "components" of a
package for my purposes.
How do I get this listing or database without downloading all the
archives and computing my own?
