A new release of coreutils, 6.7-2, has been uploaded, replacing 6.7-1 as
the current version.
This is a minor patch release, which attempts to work around the UAC
restrictions that Windows Vista imposes on /bin/install due to its name.
As I don't have access to a Vista machine (yet), I am relying on Corinna's
patch: http://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2006-12/msg00583.html. See also the
upstream documentation in /usr/share/doc/coreutils-6.7/.
GNU coreutils provides a collection of commonly used utilities essential
to a standard POSIX environment. It comprises the former textutils,
sh-utils, and fileutils packages. The following executables are included:
[ base64 basename cat chgrp chmod chown chroot cksum comm cp csplit cut
date dd df dir dircolors dirname du echo env expand expr factor false fmt
fold gkill groups head hostid hostname id install join link ln logname ls
md5sum mkdir mkfifo mknod mv nice nl nohup od paste pathchk pinky pr
printenv printf ptx pwd readlink rm rmdir seq sha1sum sha224sum sha256sum
sha384sum sha512sum shred shuf sleep sort split stat stty su sum sync tac
tail tee test touch tr true tsort tty uname unexpand uniq unlink users
