I am getting very frustrated, but not with you guys.
My latest drama is that the unzip program installed by Packaging/install.sh does not work.
For example the command
unzip -q -o /c/Users/Public/GNUCash_Downloads/readline-5.1-lib.zip -d /c/soft/readline
from the msys command line fails.
unzip -q -o /cygdrive/c/Users/Public/GNUCash_Downloads/readline-5.1-lib.zip -d /cygdrive//c/soft/readline
from the cygwin command line works.
I then went back into msys and rerun install.sh and it went on to the next download, unzip where it failed again.
One option is to remove cygwin but I do nott wish to do this at this point in time.
Another option is to butcher Packagin/* to use the cygwin unzip but I do not know where to start, or am not prepared to put the time in to do this.
Another option is to download the source for unzip, configure/make/install and use that unzip.
A third option is to find out why unzip is not working in msys.
unzip -t /c/Users/Public/GNUCash_Downloads/readline-5.1-lib.zip
from the msys command prompt and it fails (like all the rest) by bringing up the help instructions.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Yours Sincerely Stephen Grant Brown
