Re: getting emacs in cygwin

  yes, you can run emacs in cygwin in either of two modes, which
emacs figures out by itself.  Either in terminal mode if invoked from
a terminal emulator like, say putty or in full graphical mode if
executed from one of cywin's X-windows.

And yes, you can run a shell inside it too, if you set up .emacs init
file right.

also, based on recommendations by some in this group i got puttycyg.  i love
that i can expand the window horizontally.  however, when i execute
"putty.exe -cygwin" it brings up a dialog first into which i have to type
"-" for the login.  is there a way to bypass this so just the shell comes

Do this in your "cygwin.bat" file. c:/.../putty.exe -cygterm -load lou_cyg_putty

But, first you have to create the putty session load file", which in
the above case
I arbitrary named "lou_cyg_putty" ,  You can give it any name  you wish.
Where in this example "lou_cyg_putty" is the name you gave to a"putty session
you customized for a cygwin window" and then saved it from withing the
"Putty configuration" window.  For example, set you screen title in
"Window"-> "Behavior" to
"Lou's Cygwin Putty Terminal" or what ever... Set sizes, character
fonts and then
give these a session name and click [Save].

Then everytime you invoke cygwin the putty terminal will come up,
without having the putty configuration screen always come up.


Another really great thing about putty terminals is that you can cut and paste. This I find a great time saver.
