Is this packagable? It sounds pretty interesting.
Probably. I could put it in cygutils, or standalone (like the new
cygcheck-leaves package is a standalone utility).
Would it be crazy to generate this and make it available on the cygwin
web site? Or would the dependency graph generation overload
The basic processing to generate a .dot file is pretty simple really;
just string comparisons and hash manipulations. But as Ryan already
pointed out, generating the actual graph in whatever format, is
probably compute intensive.
My goodness - you have been busy! You've taken some hacky kludgy perl
that I threw together in five minutes flat and turned it into a proper
programme. Tip of the hat to you, sir...
