Jan 04, 2010 · However my online backup is via ssh/rsync (it's a commercial provider, I have no ability to change anything server-side) so I need a rsync/ssh (and possibly cron, although normal task scheduler will work) combination. I am using UNC paths throughout. rsync; bsdtar; ncurses; Cygwin Setup will install some additional dependencies and then generate a number of Desktop Shortcuts and Start menu items for the various Cygwin shell programs which have been installed. After you've exited the Cygwin installer you can always install more packages by running the Cygwin setup.exe program again.
The bitmap libraries have been removed; they are now downloaded and installed when building R by using make rsync-extsoft. The Cygwin "cygpath.exe" utility has been added to Rtools/bin; this allows conversion between Cygwin-style paths used in shell scripts and native Windows-style paths. Changes since R 3.1.2
