Re: grep 3.0-2 not stripping CRs on Windows

Hi,

the grep package in version 3.0-2 fails to strip CR characters from the input, the reproducer is fairly simple:

```
$ echo -e 'foo\r\n' | grep -a 'foo$'
$
```

Perhaps the grep fails to detect it’s running on Windows because of cygwin emulates Linux so well? :)

Cygwin is a POSIX platform not a pure Windows one.
If you need to strip CR character, d2u of dos2unix package is the  tool.

PS: cygcheck.out should be attached to the mail not inline, as inline screw up any word search of the mailing list.

Marco
