New on sourceware: cygutils-0.9.7-1
Fri Apr 20 09:01:00 GMT 2001
cygutils-0.9.7-1 has been uploaded to the Cygwin net distribution.
cygutils provides a collection of small -- and hopefully useful --
utilities. This package started life as the "misc" package from
the "CygUtils" website, but has been renamed and has a new home:
ascii.exe banner.exe cal.exe dump.exe namei.exe
conv.exe u2d.exe unix2dos.exe d2u.exe dos2unix.exe
The source package provides:
semtool.exe semstat.exe semtool.exe msgtool.exe
(these are not distributed in binary form because they require
the cygipc package -- which is not part of the official cygwin
distribution. There are good reasons for this; search the
mailing list archives if you're curious)
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 and pick
up 'cygutils' from the 'Devel' category.
Note that downloads from sources.redhat.com (aka cygwin.com) aren't
allowed due to bandwidth limitations. This means that you will need
to find a mirror which has this update.
In the US, ftp://mirrors.rcn.net/mirrors/sources.redhat.com/cygwin/
is a reliable high bandwidth connection.
In Japan, ftp://ftp.u-aizu.ac.jp/pub/gnu/gnu-win32/ is already
In DK, http://mirrors.sunsite.dk/cygwin/ is usually up-to-date.
If one of the above doesn't have the latest version of this package
you can either wait for the site to be updated or find another
