Adding new packages in Cygwin

Experimentals, Info.Tech Add comments

I’ve been playing around with Cygwin after 7 years. I check on the new stuffs and it has been change a lot.

One thing I puzzled about was how to add new commands aside from default cygwin installation. So here it is;

 setup.exe -q -P  wget,tar,qawk,bzip2,subversion,vim

So you will use the setup.exe of cygwin that you downloaded. Then install the commands that what you need.

Below is the command to update all components:

cd C:\cygwin64\
wget -N http://cygwin.com/setup.exe
setup.exe --no-desktop --no-shortcuts --no-startmenu --quiet-mode
