I just noticed that I don't have biber since switching to cygwin x64.

Is that not available or have I managed to get a partial install somehow?


$ tlmgr list biber

package:     biber
category:    Package
shortdesc:   A BibTeX replacement for users of biblatex.
longdesc:    Biber is a BibTeX replacement for users of biblatex. Biber
supports full UTF-8, can (re)-encode input and output, supports highly
configurable sorting, dynamic bibliography sets and many other features.
The CTAN distribution offers a compressed tar archive of the sources, etc.,
together with "binary" distributions for a variety of platforms. Note: on
SourceForge biber is formally named "biblatex-biber", to distinguish it
from an earlier (now apparently moribund) project called "biber".
