CGF: Thanks for the backhanded answer you supplied. The program you
mentioned would be a nice thing to have it didnt crash the
NT server. (Ive already sent a bug complaint to the developer).
Chris J: Thanks for looking into this.
In the meantime I will dig around for something stable. I certainly hope
that there will be a Cygwin version of lsof sometime in the near future.

This could be done through /proc in future, perhaps.
I will look into it.

If you searched the cygwin web site, including mailing list archives and
found no mention of lsof then it is a very safe bet that there are no
plans to port it.
I hope that this message, which is now in the archives, will serve to
make this clear for future people searching for a port of whatever.
In the meantime, if you want a generic windows utility which does
similar to lsof (which I had to lookup by the way -- it would be nice
if people didn't assume that everyone else shared their knowledge of
packages they want ported), check out http://www.sysinternals.com .
