- Subject: whole-word matches searches of mailing list archive & packages
I was searching for whether the current cygwin has the "stat" command.
This is for future reference, since I am unable to update my old
cygwin installation at the moment. I eventually found that "stat"
resides in coreutils, but I was wondering if there is a way to specify
whole-word matches when searching either the mailing list archive or
while performing a Setup Package Search. The reason is that some
words are very common as partial words, so searches tend to come up
with many unrelated hits. Thanks.
