Thanks for this product announcement. I will likely take you up
on this offer. I'm not sure that your memo answers my original question. Let me restate things
QUESTION #1: What is the official documentation for the ECGS
compilers, libraries, and utilities (debugger &c) available
QUESTION #2: Is there a single seat price for your product that
I think is called "CygPro Toolkit"? Do you have a detailed data sheet on this workbench?
~~~ Dan St.André
> Dear Cygwin Community,
Thanks to your support and feedback, I am pleased to announce the
commercial availability of Cygwin 1.0. As you know, Cygwin is a
UNIX/Linux shell environment and portability layer enabling delivery of
open source projects to Windows. You already use Cygwin to help
integrate Windows into your UNIX-based environment and migrate
applications from UNIX to Windows.
With the new enhancements included on the CD (see http:www.cygnus.com/cygwin
for more details), you can now easily review info files and man pages.
In addition, the CD contains a more UNIX-like layout that has been
discussed and recommended by the community. The compiler incorporates
our Code Fusion technology which includes optimizations for the Intel
Pentium family of processors. I am also pleased that this release
contains our graphical debugger, Insight.
The best news is that soon (on October 15) I will be offering the
community a chance to get the new CD and docs for $20 off the "street
price" or $79 (USD).
Here's how you get it: go to http://www.cygnus.com/cygwin , click on the
"Buy Cygwin" link. On the "SHOP CYGNUS" main page, under the Cygwin
section, click on "Community Offer." The password is "SHELL" - and that
will tag the order for the special price.
Again, this will not be available until October 15. You'll have to
wait until then to order.
We are calling this version of Cygwin version 1.0 but it is essentially
B21. It comes with a number of additional binaries from a standard
net release. Currently, the additional tools are not mentioned on
the web site but they soon will be. Until then, I've attached a list of
the additional binaries in the "contrib/bin" directory to this message.
If you have any questions about things like price, shipping and
handling, etc. please send them to email@example.com . DJ and I will try
to answer any technical questions in the firstname.lastname@example.org
mailing list (but please remember that this activity is not part of
our full-time jobs).
I'm excited about this Cygwin offering and can't wait to see this on
the shelves of CompUSA, Best Buy, etc. The box has, IMO, some really
cool cover art of a shell -- to symbolize the use of a UNIX/Linux
shell on Windows.
