RE: install 'cron' packages in cygwin


here is the output  from 'cygcheck -s'. it looks like cron and vim are
installed. I see a src directory in which I have sourcce codes for cron and
vim. I don't know whether I have to compile them to get them to work. Can I
install the binary directly ?

Please continue with the list.  I have CCed this response there.

I am not familiar with cron, you should read the documentation that comes
with it to see how to set it up.  There should also be a lot in the mail
list archive.

I don't know why vim doesn't start for you.  Please send the output of
'cygcheck -s' to the list so someone can see better what is happening.
