Subject: ANNOUNCE: Release 5 of Fileutils 4.0
Reply-To: djgpp AT delorie DOT com


I'd like to announce release 5 of the DJGPP port of Fileutils 4.0. This
release is a minor bugfix release. This will be the last release of Fileutils
4.0 for DJGPP, unless there are any major bugs found.

Here are the changes over release 4:

- Make sure all executables in the binary distribution are stripped.

- Fix a bug in gnu/filutil4.0/djgpp/patchexe.sh, so that all executables
  in the binary distribution have the patches to DJGPP libc included.

Apologies for these bugs. If you use the binary distribution, you should

To use the Fileutils programs, you only need to download the binary
distribution. You may also want to download the documentation
distribution, to get the documentation in HTML, PostScript and DVI
formats. If you want to examine or rebuild the Fileutils sources, you need

The Fileutils port is available here:




Please read the file gnu/filutil4.0/djgpp/readme.dos in whichever
distribution you download. This contains important instructions on
installing and using Fileutils.

You can also read the readme and changelog files online:


A lot of credit for this port must go to Eli Zaretskii, since he provided
me with patches that actually did much of the port for me, and also for
his advice. Thanks also to Jim Meyering, Tim Van Holder, Jason Green,
Laurynas Biveinis, Paul Eggert, Charles Sandmann and JT Williams for their
help. Thanks also to the djgpp-workers.

If you encounter any problems with this port, please feel free to contact
me by e-mail (address below). I also try to read the DJGPP newsgroup,
comp.os.msdos.djgpp, on a regular basis.

Thanks, bye,

Richard Dawe
