INITIAL RELEASE FOR CYGWIN
==========================

libpipeline is a C library for manipulating pipelines of sub-processes 
in a flexible and convenient way.
See http://libpipeline.nongnu.org/

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.


PORTING NOTES
==============

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:
http://waterlan.home.xs4all.nl/cygwin/libpipeline-3/libpipeline-1.3.0-3.src.patch
This will be solved in the next 1.3.1 release, because the patch is 
already in the upstream source.

best regards,
