    Hi,

    would it be possible to provide p7zip binaries for cygwin?

    People like me, who try to get in touch with the linux/unix world using cygwin on Windows, would really appreciate that. At least for my person I have to admin that my knowledge is still to little to make the binaries on my own.

    Regards,
    redista

      I do not want to provide p7zip binaries for cygwin.
      This target is a "toy" because 7-zip already provides 7za.exe for Windows.

      It is very easy :
      - copy makefile.cygwin over makefile.machine
      - launch "make"
      - wait ...
      - try bin/7za.exe

      Remark : I do not understand why you want to use p7zip intead of
      7za.exe for Windows provided by Igor Pavlov (www.7-zip.org) ?

      cygwin shells can use win32 binaries !
