ncl executable for 6.0.0

I have recently downloaded NCL 6.0.0 for cygwin from

I have then followed all of the cygwin installation notes from

This includes gunzipping and untarring a file called
ncl_ncarg-6.0.0.CYGWIN_NT-6.1_i686.tar.gz within the /usr/local/ directory

Among many other things, this creates an executable in /usr/local/bin/
called ncl.exe, but it doesn't overwrite the previous 6.0.0-beta version of
ncl (no .exe suffix). So, if I type "ncl -V", I get "6.0.0-beta", whereas
if I type "ncl.exe -V", I get "6.0.0". Should the executable called "ncl"
also be in the tar file?


I know this is a minor problem, but I spent a lot of time figuring out that
all I needed to do was use "ncl.exe" instead of "ncl". I thought others
might run into this too.
