I'm not a regular Cygwin user. I installed Cygwin and Cygwin64 for testing proposed patches. I tried to perform a
git clone, but it failed with
-bash: git: command not found. So I need to install Git, which should be a relatively simple operation.
Cygwin does not appear to supply documentation related to packages and their management:
$ man -k package package: nothing appropriate.
In the terminal, I tried
install git and
cygwin install git. The former failed with
install: missing destination file operand after ‘git’. The latter failed with
-bash: cygwin: command not found. (For completeness, I also tried
yum (Red Hat/Fedora), and
pkg_add (BSDs) with the same results. I even tried just
package with the same result).
What is the name of the Cygwin package manager?
