I've been investigating a possible bug in bison, and talking with the folk
on the bison-bug mail-list.
Fairly reasonably, their first request was that I build their latest
version and see if the bug still occurs. An they gave me a version
numbered 1.875c (the current cygwin version is 1.975b, so they are pretty
1.875c behaves nicely to a ./configure and make but it then crashes
immediately when I give it my input script.
I was wondering whether I should have expected that, or whether packages
generally get patched when converted to cygwin? I ask because I seem re
recall some posts on this list a few months ago, which were about how much
<something> needed patching, every time new sources where brought over from
So, are any special actions required when getting source from other places
than via the cygwin setup program?
Free transport into the future, while you wait.
