- Subject: Cygwin 1.5 vs. 1.7: tail
At present I am using cygwin 1.5 mainly, but I have also started to
migrate over to 1.7. Everything works quite well, but I encountered a
problem with the tail command. Obviously the + syntax does no longer
work in 1.7
In 1.5 when I call eg.
tail +3 /path/to/some/file
I get the whole file printed starting with line 3 (the first 2 lines are
omitted). With cygwin 1.7 this does no longer work.
I get an error:
tail: cannot open '+3' for reading: No such file or directory.
Is this on purpose or an accident?
