in thread Math::Pari patch for 5.10.0

My original post, complaining of my inability to find a working rsync was sent at 6pm (local time). Almost 7 hours later, and courtesy of an additional email from BrowserUk that included an 'ssh.exe' I was able to succesfully run rsync -avz rsync:// Unfortunately, I've so far been unable to locate the files it claimed to have downloaded. I've just done a search of my entire hard drive and they're still not visible ... where does rsync place the files it downloads ? I expected them to be placed somewhere in the cwd, but that's definitely not where they are.

Maybe they'll pop up in the morning ... or next week ... or next year ...

    rsync -avz rsync://

    Please read the rsync manual, you want

    rsync -avz rsync:// .

    Note the space before the dot.

      Please read the rsync manual

      Why should I bother doing that when 'perldoc perlhack' explicitly told me what I had to run ?

      (Actually, the '.' you quoted from my post was just a "full stop" - not part of the command that I actually ran.) Needless to say, when I run the command exactly as you suggested it works fine :-) I can now see that the command I ran simply downloaded the list of files - but not the actual files, themselves. The (what-I-presume-to-be-successful) download terminates with:
      . . x2p/util.c x2p/util.h x2p/walk.c rsync: failed to set permissions on "/cygdrive/c/_32/rsync/.": Permiss +ion denied (13) sent 96831 bytes received 17417748 bytes 48855.17 bytes/sec total size is 64828778 speedup is 3.70 rsync error: some files could not be transferred (code 23) at /home/la +po/packaging/tmp/rsync-2.6.6/main.c(1173)
      Not sure of the effect of that error message - I'll find out tomorrow when I try to build perl-5.11.0 (and Math-Pari, if perl-5.11.0 builds ok) - and I'll report back. It's now nearly 1.30am over here (and I was up at 3am yesterday morning) ... 7.5 hours of shit is enough for me for one night :-)

      Thanks to ysth, BrowserUk and haoess.
