Did my earlier patch get included? I haven't seen a "run" new version
My patch was the one that properly quote arguments. Maybe let's start
with that before putting new stuff underneath it. From Chuck: "I'll
roll a new update fairly soon."
I'm still looking for a released fix for this too. Thus far I've been
using run 1.2.
Any word on this?
In the mean time, you can run it from /usr/local/bin if you like:
wget -O RUN-patch.txt 'http://pastebin.com/download.php?i=4SSPDGQh'
cvs checkout run
patch -p0 < ../RUN-patch.txt
You end up with:
If you start natively from Windows, note that the run utility, by virtue
of sitting in the same directory as the cygwin dlls, takes advantage of
Window's behavior to find dlls in the same directory as the program
being run. So by installing to /usr/local/bin, and running it from
Windows (not from Cygwin shell), assuming Cygwin bin is not in your
path, you lose that advantage. Then you have to modify the path where
and when you execute run, or using run to launch /bin/bash -c command to
run with a hidden shell as the parent, otherwise your app may not find
what it needs.
If you start from Cygwin shell, you probably already have /usr/local/bin
before /usr/bin in your path, but if not, make it so.
