Re: compinit problems with Cygwin and Win2000

Well, my original reply did not get through. But after
spending a little more time on the problem I found the

It was caused by the comparison in:

_d_als=($(whence -wm '_*' | sort |
while read -rA _d_line; do
  [[ ${_d_line[2]} = function ]] && print -r - ${_d_line[1]%:}

${_d_line[2]} contains "function^M" and not "function"
as expected.

The use of the .zcompdump cache file works properly
when I change the comparison to 

  [[ ${_d_line[2]} = function? ]] && print -r - ${_d_line[1]%:}

I will probably run into this line ending problem again.

Note: the problem does not occur on win98.
