[ANNOUNCEMENT] Updated: run-1.3.0-1
Thu Jul 25 00:58:00 GMT 2013
The run package provides a simple application to launch console programs
with their console hidden.
This is a bugfix update. It should operate as normal on cygwin-1.7.21
as well as other versions of cygwin. All previous versions of run,
including 1.2.0-1, are broken on cygwin-1.7.21 and newer unless
recompiled on cygwin-1.7.22 to take advantage of a compile-time fix
that version of cygwin introduce.
Note that this package was NOT compiled on cygwin-1.7.22, and does
NOT employ cygwin's new compile-time fix; instead, run's own code was
corrected to work properly, with the cygwin-1.7.21+ runtime behavior.
CHANGES since run-1.2.0-1
* Avoid failure on cygwin-1.7.21 vs. GetCommandLine not being populated.
This was fixed in cygwin-1.7.22 but it's good to clean up this code
* Massive refactoring to share implementations (at the source code
level) with run2.
* -wait need not be the first argument
* New options --run-nogui, --run-notty, --run-verbose,
and --run-debug[=N] controlling how run.exe itself reports
error conditions and other messages.
+ By default, it is silent. If any messages are enabled
via --run-verbose or --run-debug=N, then they will either
be reported on stderr, or in windows popup boxes.
+ stderr is used if run.exe is launched from the cmdline, or
+ Windows popup boxes are used if run.exe is launched by
doubleclicking it or by a Windows shortcut, or if --run-notty.
