Overall - I like the new release. Thank you!
wc is working differently between B20.1 and 1.1.0. In B20.1, wc would
work on a binary file but in 1.1.0 it will not count the entire file.
I've tried setting CYGWIN=binmode in cygnus.bat and in the shell
environment but without success. Is this a bug or a misfeature (IMO)?
mt is not a part of the 1.1.0 distribution - will that be added soon?
tar seems happy to use the tape drive. As a workaround I am able to use
Corinna's version from B20.1 so nothing critical.
I've modified cygwin.bat to have the last line as:
bash %1 %2 %3 %4 %5 %6 %7 %8 %9
while not passing everything on the command is better than no arguments.
If someone knows a better way to pass all the command line arguments I'd
love to know.
Is there a reason not add cygwin.bat to the registry to handle .sh files?
