Well, I think I've gotten the hang of the procedures by now (that was one
of my first submissions -- WOW, time flies).  No, it's not too late, and I
still think this would be useful.

Yep, the message actually says that "cygtweak" should be renamed.  I think
"cygprogctl" is even better than "cygoption", so that's the name I used.
I've also changed the headers and copyrights appropriately.

Attached is a patch against the latest CVS that adds the "cygprogctl"
script with a description in utils.sgml and the appropriate rules in  The only thing I didn't test were the rules in the Makefile,
so if someone could please double-check them, it'd be great.  As usual,
the ChangeLog is below.
2003-09-27  Igor Pechtchanski  <>

	* cygprogctl: New shell script.
	* Add rules for cygprogctl.
	* utils.sgml: Add section on cygprogctl.
