Re: cygcheck -f reorders output

I found it surprising that the packages aren't listed in the order requested:

$ cygcheck -f `which bash find grep xargs cygwin1.dll`
bash-4.4.12-3
cygwin-2.9.0-3
findutils-4.6.0-1
findutils-4.6.0-1
grep-3.0-2
$

Adds a bit of challenge to match the output with the parameters.


it is a side effect of the order of search in the
/etc/setup/*.gz file list.
The first match is reported first and so on.

To maintain the order

$ for i in  `which bash find grep xargs cygwin1.dll`;
  do cygcheck -f $i;done

bash-4.4.12-3
findutils-4.6.0-1
grep-3.0-2
findutils-4.6.0-1
cygwin-2.9.0-3
