Re: Install problems on Win95

I don't remember how I unpacked less.  Here is one thing you can try.

When you unpack less into the directory (I think your's is
C:/Cygnus/B19/H-i386-cygwin32), in WinZip when you Extract, look for a
checkbox titled 'Use folder names'.  This will place all the files in
the correct directory.

This is where they end up (PATH = C:/Cygnus/B19/H-i386-cygwin32)

you probably have to create the /PATH/man/man1 directory beforehand.

Word of warning, there may be a problem later, with Octave looking for
either cygwin1.dll or cygwinb19.dll.  I forgot which one is actually
there, but you need to copy the other one (i.e. if Octave looks for
cygwin1.dll, copy it from cygwinb19.dll and vice versa)  I forgot what I
actually did so we need to write a bug report for this one.
