this little upgrade tip seems to be working great (it's not finished
yet) ... however, i have no idea what it is doing.
i would like to simply upgrade all of the packages i currently have
installed. not install anything new, not uninstall anything i already
i couldn't find any info on command line switches to setup.
setup -h,--help, /? did not show anything.
further, i couldn't find any documentation on the cygwin site about
can anyone point me in the right direction, as i find this easier than
fiddling with the setup GUI.
is there any way to "grap" single packages this way ?
what i would really love is a dpkg/apt-get system for cygwin ...
i guess i'll have to wait for that one.
