busybox-w32 version FRP-3902-g61e53aa93 was released on 2021-03-03. It is the current release. For other release notes see:
To create symbolic links you must either:
suapplet may help with this.
busybox --install -s can be used to install
symbolic links for all of the applets in BusyBox. Without the
hard links are created instead.
busybox --uninstall still only works for hard links.
printfapplet was modified in the FRP-3532 release to allow ANSI escape sequences to work in certain circumstances. Further changes have been made so that escape sequences should work for almost any string output by a single invocation of
ESC[38;2;R;G;Bm 24-bit foreground colour ESC[48;2;R;G;Bm 24-bit background colour ESC[38;5;Nm 8-bit foreground colour ESC[48;5;Nm 8-bit background colourThe full range of colours is only available in terminals that have native support for ANSI escapes. In old-style Windows consoles colours are mapped to the closest available value.
BB_SKIP_ANSI_EMULATION=2indicates that busybox-w32 should attempt to detect if the terminal has native support for escape sequences and use them if it does. This value is now the default. To force the use of emulation set
BB_SKIP_ANSI_EMULATION=0; to force the use of actual escape sequences set
bcis an arbitrary precision calculator language with a syntax similar to C. This is the main reason the binaries are so much bigger.
nprocprints the number of available CPUs. This implementation supports a maximum of 64 CPUs.
freedisplays the amount of memory in use and pagefile (swap) usage. The values may not be directly comparable with those shown on a Unix system.
uptimedisplays the current time and how long the system has been up. On Unix it also displays the system load average but Windows doesn't collect this information.
awkallows output of the NUL character.
viselection of ranges for change/delete/yank by forward character motion commands (SPACE or 'l') now allows the number of characters to be specified.
nl -b noutputs lines without numbers where previously it output lines without numbers and without any content.
--helpoption works on certain applets (e.g.
usleep) where it was previously broken.
