Nope, the cygutils website was relocated to thanks to the generosity of Peter Castro. Not much happening there; it was rendered largely obsolete once I got most of my stuff ported to the cygwin packaging system in (what? 2000?). However, still lives there, at

Strangely, if I set TERM=rxvt-cygwin-native , use luconP as my font , it does NOT matter whether my CYGWIN variable has codepage:oem, codepage:ansi, or neither. The following behaviors are the same:

ascii.exe prints the line draw characters
pstree -G prints garbage

It *could be* due to the fact that pstree uses ncurses, and ascii does not. Checking...

Hmmm. /usr/lib/ncurses/test/ncurses.exe (part of the ncurses-demo package) turns the screen black-on-black when I try to check the line-draw characters. So I can't even tell if ACS chars with ncurses is broken -- first I gotta figure out why the colors are getting scrogged by the test program! Somebody, like the ncurses maintainer, should fix that.
