I'd like to simply transfer my cygwin64/ directory from my old Thinkpad
to my new Thinkpad, both running Win 10 x64 Pro. E.g., I would put my
old c:/cygwin64/ onto a flash SSD USB drive e:/ .
tar cfp - cygwin64 > e:/cygwin64.tar &
Then e:/cygwin64.tar would be mounted on my new computer.
I'm assuming that there is not actual install required, e.g., having to
run setup-x86_64.exe first on the new computer?
