I'm getting some odd errors when I apply this patch:
"4NT: Unknown command f:"
(as you can see I use 4NT).
I haven't had time to debug where these are coming from but I get one
for every file displayed.
Btw, have you considered some kind of rpm -f functionality? That would
allow a user to do a:
cygcheck -f /usr/bin/ls.exe
Also some kind of functionality which would allow cygcheck to query
the same files as the web search would be really cool. Something like
cygcheck --whatprovides /usr/bin/ls.exe
would be really useful.
Another interesting thing would be to do some ntsec/mkpasswd/mkgroup
type sanity checks or even to fix up common ntsec problems.
