Greetings, Lester Ingber!

> As of 21 Aug 2014, under cygwin, top and free return a blank line. Under
> cygwin64 they work just fine. This happens on both of our Thinkpad Carbon X1
> PCs under Windows 8.1.

> I see several files under /bin that were changed that date, e.g.,
> /bin% ls -l |grep "Aug 21"
> Under setup, I do not see top or free listed. Which package should I
> re-install to see if this will fix these problems? I regulary use

Try the latest Cygwin snapshot.
Also, checking for exactly "Aug 21" usually won't help, as files may have
waited for you a long time, and dates are not updated, when they come from
