I'm hoping to port the patches to the 3.2 beta before proposing them upstream
(right now, my cygwin TODO list includes: get coreutils 6.3 stable ported to
cygwin, get bash 3.2beta ported to cygwin as experimental, post bash patches
upstream, update bash-completion to use cygport and add some long overdue
promised completion functions for cygwin). As written, my patch is
conditionalized on __CYGWIN__, but when proposing it upstream, I will try to
make it more generic.
So, I keep wanting to know if you are thinking about submitting this
upstream (or have you done so already?)...
Second, this release adds a new shopt, igncr, which dynamically
tells bash to ignore all \r in the input file when it is set; however, it
defaults to unset.
I really appreciate all of the time, thought, and effort you're putting into
this, Eric. The Cygwin project is lucky to have you.
What CGF said. And good luck with coreutils; I'm currently trying to
build it across /my/ platform list (except for Cygwin which I leave in
your capable hands). OSS should be fun... :-)
