If you're running Cygwin's bash prompt via cygwin.bat, you can add
whatever "batch" commands you want to that. If you're looking to
add some shell commands, you can do so in your .bash_login or .bashrc
file, depending on your intent. See 'man bash' for details.

Actually, I think we were both a little late answering this one, since it
was already answered even by the time that I responded. You responded to
my response. ;-) I think you wanted to address Ben.
