[ANNOUNCEMENT] Updated: ioperm-0.4-1

New News:
Completed iopl() implementation.

Old News:
This software adds support for ioperm()/iopl() functions to Cygwin.
This support includes sys/io.h and sys/perm.h header files (not
included in Cygwin by default) together with development and runtime

=============================== Warning ===============================
Warning: Current release of ioperm may decrease your system security on
Windows NT/2000/XP because enables access to system I/O ports for all
processes, including non-privileged. If you are not sure, please do not
use ioperm on Windows NT/2000/XP.

To install the package, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on the web page. This downloads setup.exe to your system.
Then, run setup and answer all of the questions. You'll find ioperm
listed in the "Devel", "Libs" and "System" categories.

After package installation ioperm.sys driver activation is required for
Windows NT/2000/XP. Use `ioperm -i` command to activate the driver.
Driver deactivation is available through `ioperm -u` command. See
enclosed documentation for more info.

If you have questions or comments, please send them to the Cygwin
mailing list at: with "ioperm" word in a message
subject. I would appreciate it if you would use this mailing list
rather than emailing me directly.
