INITIAL RELEASE FOR CYGWIN
libpipeline is a C library for manipulating pipelines of sub-processes
in a flexible and convenient way.
Libpipeline is required for man-db. Man-db is an alternative 'man'
package (http://man-db.nongnu.org/). Man-db is used by major Linux
distributions such as Debian, Suse, and Fedora. A big advantage of
man-db is better internationalisation support.
Porting of man-db to Cygwin is being worked on.
On 32-bit Cygwin one test out of 7 fails (test basic). With a static
library all tests succeed, but this package contains a shared library,
which is preferred. Tests with man-db have not shown errors.
On 64-bit Cygwin all tests pass.
The .src.patch file in the source package is not complete. This is due
to cygport. The complete src.patch file is here:
This will be solved in the next 1.3.1 release, because the patch is
already in the upstream source.
