- Subject: Cygwin commands in the Windows command line
I've noticed for sometime that Cygwin commands such as "ps" and "ls"
(now) work in the Windows command line (cmd), and I'm not sure if its
because something extra I installed on/did to my machine. (In fact, the
command "pwd", when run in the cmd, shows a Cygwin path like
/cygdrive/c/Documents and Settings/my_name.) Is this as a result of
tighter integration of Cygwin with cmd?
Background to this question: I'm helping someone build a library whose
Makefile calls Visual Studio's link command, and I find that its best to
run the makefile the Visual Studio command prompt.
