Re: using chere

OK, one last thing, sorry. I did something wrong with the last test. If
I add c:\cygwin\bin and c:\cygwin\usr\X11R6\bin to the Windows PATH
variable, then chere does work to open up an xterm!
So I guess the only question is: is there any way to avoid this
requirement? It would be helpful for me if I didn't have to add these to
the path. I'm not sure how chere is implemented, but could it just set
these variables before calling the xterm? Thanks again.
Continuing this barrage of replies to myself... I was able to make this
work the way I want. I just modified the registry keys myself, following
the output of chere -p, and replaced
c:\cygwin\bin\run.exe -p c:\cygwin\bin -p c:\cygwin\usr\X11R6\bin
I wonder if this might be useful enough to become the default behavior?
Presumably chere is already able to detection the location of the cygwin
directory, since it finds run.exe...
In any case, sorry for all the emails, looks like I could have figured
it out myself...
