- Subject: Misc programs/scripts/config files I wrote
When I update/build cygwin, I must make sure to kill all cygwin
processes, or I will be required to reboot. So I just wrote a script
using win32 native python to terminate all process that has cygwin1.dll
Sadly, I can't simply post the .py file out, because it uses a few other
files (I'm too lazy). You can check out
Now this might be inappropriate for this ml, but I'm posting in the hope
that what I have done could be useful to other cygwin users. These are
not completely cygwin, but it is definitely most related.
Run the following commands:
svn checkout http://windows-config.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/ windows-config-read-only
#(perform a virus scan if you don't trust me:-)
./after-check-out.sh #you will see webpages opened, these are some tools you need to install
It started as a simple .bashrc, and I used a local svn server to version
control it in the belief that we should VC anything (of value). Then I
found out google code and switched to avoid syncing my .rc files using a
USB stick between home and work.
There are some .exe files in windows-config-read-only/bin/windows, the
source code of them can be found in windows-config-read-only/gcode.
Some other .exe files are also installed by download-external.sh
(invoked by after-check-out.sh), for e.g., some programs from
sysinternals, Procmon/Procexp/handles/winobj, etc.
startup.sh will invoke substartup.sh to start some programs in
windows-config-read-only/bin/windows/startup, and then it will "ln -sf"
itself into your "$HOMEDRIVE$HOMEPATH/Start Menu/Programs/Startup" so
that next time you login Windows, it will run itself again.
It will also change your /etc/passwd to set your HOME to
windows-config-read-only! Be careful:-)
Don't worry Windows don't know how to start your startup.sh, startup.sh
will invoke setreg.sh to setup the registry for .sh/bash association,
among other things.
Some other useful things:
= Access MSDN from Emacs (.emacs, helpEmacs.py)
= Integrate windows programs and cygwin programs (grep for shellHelper_vc6/shellHelper_cyg)
= Compile vc6/vc7/vc8/vc9 projects from Emacs with compilation mode (vccompile)
= Access JDK help documents from Emacs (.emacs jdkhelp.sh)
= grep registry (regrep.py)
= replace registry using regexp (regsub.py)
(for e.g. regsub.py 'c:.documents and settings' 'd:\\Profiles' to point
the windows user folder to another disk, which can be useful if you
= open regedit.exe with the current item specified on the command line
= bashHere/emacsedit with right mouse menu for Explorer
= source code reading (grepall.py -e "printf" .)
