Pipeviewer is a command-line utility to view the progress of data 
through a pipe. Some modifiers can be added, for example to limit the 
speed rate or close the pipe at a given transferred size.


* pv version 1.4.4
* Removed --disable-ipc from CYGCONF_ARGS in cygport file because now pv 
can run without cygserver.
* Added patch pv-1.4.4-R-man-cyg.patch to display a warning in the man 
page in the BUGS section about the usage of -R option with Cygwin.

Known issues:

* The -c option does not work properly on Cygwin without cygserver 
running, if started near the bottom of the screen (IPC is needed to 
handle the terminal scrolling). To fix this, start cygserver before 
using pv -c.

* The -R option is not available on Cygwin without cygserver running 
(SYSV IPC is needed). To fix this, start cygserver before running the 
instance of pv you want, at runtime, to change the parameters of.
