Some Cygwin Tips.

Your previous cygwin.bat file had options in it that meant that bash ignored the .bashrc file. This was really annoying as it took me forever to work out why. The new cygwin.bat file is as follows:-


@echo off

C:
chdir C:\cygwin\bin
start rxvt -sr -sl 10000 -fg white -bg black -fn 13x22 -fb 13x22 -tn cygwin -e /bin/bash

Adding --login - to the end of the last line results the config file being ignored. One day I will read the manual.
