proposing a new package: dash (shell)
Wed Mar 4 18:27:00 GMT 2009
I would like to see dash (a POSIX-compliant implementation of sh) to
be distributed with Cygwin. I am also willing to become the official
maintainer if no one else want to do the job.
dash home: http://gondor.apana.org.au/~herbert/dash/
I am not ready to do an ITP on firstname.lastname@example.org, because i have
no setup.hint and i have not packaged the files yet.
But i have compiled dash-0.5.5.1.tar.gz 14-Jan-2009 10:38 203K. with
cygwin 1.5. The resulting dash.exe is only 77K.
I have done some minimal testing. dash can run its own configure
script. In order to be sure that dash.exe was the only shell use by
cygwin, i copied dash.exe over sh.exe and bash.exe.
I have read somewhere that dash becamed recently the official shell of
I wold like to know if it is ok for every body here.
