Updated: cygutils-1.2.1-2 [Requires cygwin-1.5.3+]
Wed Sep 3 07:34:00 GMT 2003
cygutils provides a collection of small -- and hopefully useful --
This release is built against the cygwin-1.5.x kernel; it will not work
* Compiled against the 1.5.2 kernel.
* Documentation moved to /usr/share/*
* Added ipcs.exe, ipcrm.exe (with man pages). These programs
previously were part of the cygipc package. However, once cygserver
is ready, these should also be compile-able against it. So, this
is a forward-looking addition. At present, these apps are linked
against the cygcygipc-2.dll shared version of the cygipc library.
* ipck script moved from the cygipc package to here.
* Now actually compile the semtool, shmtool, msgtool, and semstat
programs. Previously, because cygipc was not an official package,
I did not actually include these binaries in the distribution,
even though the cygutils source package contained them (they
require libcygipc to build; but should also work with cygserver
when the time comes). Again, these apps are linked against the
cygcygipc-2.dll shared version of the cygipc library.
* compiled against the cygipc-2.01-2 *shared* libcygipc.
* Because cygipc is now a DLL, we SHOULD list cygipc as a requirement
for cygutils. But, I don't really want to force everyone who wants
lpr.exe to download cygipc. So, I do NOT list cygipc as a requires:
for this pacakge -- it shouldn't matter, anyway: the other progs
will be fine without libcygipc, and the ipc tools don't work anyway
if ipc-daemon2.exe isn't running even if it IS installed. But, the
only way for ipc-daemon2.exe to run, is if libcygipc is installed.
So, we're covered.
Note that the ipcs and ipcrm source code is the version that originated
from cygipc, which is different from that provided in the util-linux
package on most linux systems. Later on, I may consider switching over
to util-linux-derived code; but that can wait.
