[jasspa] ME and gziped info-files in Win9x
- Hello, again me...
I get it working also for multiple gz-files
>> further, the second the use of gzip-info-files seems to be only possible withI copied gunzip.exe and cygwin1.dll from the cygwin-bin directory in the path.

gunzip -c "foo.gz" > c:\temp\metemp.0
in c:\info, nothing happens
gunzip -c "foo.gz" > c:/temp/metemp.1
in c:\info, in c:\temp metemp.1 was generated
I tried gunzip -c "foo.gz" > metemp.0
and this file was generated in the c:\info directory
again I run info and tried to see the info for Axe (a ME competitor) which is in:
by clicking on '* Axe: (axe).'
The command line showed a promising `found info in c:/info/axe.info'
I had to wait for a longer time and finally the axe-info appears and all was working fine.
Great, I startet gzipping the gnu-assembler-info-files....to
I clicked on
'* As: (as). The GNU assembler.'
ME and gunzip needed about 30 seconds for unzipping on my machine (AMD-K6-2 300 MHz, 64 Mb RAM). The mouse courser was twitching 8 times....
and again I was reading the info-files for the assembler.
It essential to wait here and not to think `oh, Me is hanging, I press C-g'. So look at the dancing-mouse to be `info'rmed.
For the 12 texinfo files I have to wait 55 seconds...

I removed it again.

How happy the people with no problems...
