I used to use one of the Cygwin B packages where the egrep.exe utility was
I'm on an XP system and I downloaded replacement packages yesterday and
ensured that I included the "grep" package.
I went to use "egrep.exe" and found it wasn't installed. I did find an
egrep.1 but it just points to grep.
I reviewed my installation and found "Keep" for grep package 2.5-1
(indicating to me the package has been installed), and see egrep listed in
the package description. I also see fgrep listed, though I'm not
interested in using it.
Neither egrep.exe nor fgrep.exe exist in my bin/ directory, as I would have
expected. Did this fall through the cracks?
In the short term I can copy grep.exe to egrep.exe because my existing
batch files rely on it by name, so I just thought I'd report this in case
(1) the files get added or
(2) the package description removes references to the files not included.
I hope this helps.
p.s. http://cygwin.com/bugs.html points to http://cygwin.com/lists.html and
says where *not* to send bugs, but not where bugs should be sent for
problems like this ... I would have thought that would be a FAQ: "which
bugs (by example) go to which mail lists?"
