catdoc has been updated to fix some issues reported by Bernt Røskar Brenna.

There's now a /etc/catdocrc file with the entry use_locale=no to
disable the automatic
output locale detection, which is on cygwin always falsely US-ASCII,
where it should be 8859-1.
If your locale is detected correctly set  use_locale=yes or remove this line.

catdoc dumps Word, Excel and Powerpoint files contents.

To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on
the http://cygwin.com/ web page.  This downloads setup.exe to your
system.  Once you've downloaded setup.exe, run it and select "Text"
and then click on the appropriate fields until the above
announced version numbers appear if they are not displayed already.

If your mirror doesn't yet have the latest version of this package after
24 hours, you can either continue to wait for that site to be updated or
you can try to find another mirror.
