Hi all! First I'd like to say the Cygwin is really great. My system at
is a Windows98se box with everything including the kitchen sink thrown
Although I have Linux on a separate disk drive which I can boot off of,
Cygwin makes it a lot easier to toggle back and forth between Windows
So keep up the great work! If I have a few minutes I'll see if I can
something for someone. But presently I have a few questions:
Windows98se, Downloaded Cygwin on August 17th (don't know the version
off the top of my head). I'm running tcsh and bash, use rxvt as the
I have lots of hard drive space and lots of memory.
rpm: Is there an rpm program available for Cygwin? If so I can not find
it. I thought it would be
nice to be able to unrpm the sources of programs in order to work on
vim: I have various commands in vim which end in ^M. They won't work.
(They get out to the end of the command but no return is entered. I
tried putting in ^J's - but
no go. I'm stuck. Help?)
nvi: NVI's installation returned "could not find stropts.h". I looked -
top: I saw that it was mentioned that there is now a TOP program. How
do I go about getting it?
The download didn't have it in it.
Thanks! That's it.
