New News:
=== ====
I have updated the version of rebase to 3.0-2.  The tarballs should be
available on a Cygwin mirror near you shortly.

The changes since the previous release are:

    * Add two new utilities: peflags and peflagsall

    * Change rebaseall to skip the Cygwin LSA DLLs

Note that essentially all of the changes are from Chuck Wilson.  See the
following for the details:


I would like to thank Chuck for providing the above patch that
significantly enhanced the rebase package.

Old News:
=== ====
The Cygwin rebase package originally contained two utilities, rebase and
rebaseall.  The first utility is modeled after Microsoft's SDK rebase
while The rebaseall utility is a convenient way for users that suffer
from the Cygwin rebase problem to rebase their entire system (i.e., all
of their DLLs).

Please read the README file:


since it covers requirements, usage, known issues, etc.

I would like to thank Ralf Habacker for providing the imagehelper
library.  This library has enabled me to create a rebase utility that
is usable by all Cygwin user (regardless of platform) on all DLLs
(regardless of stripping).
