Selection by Ctrl-Left/Right/Down work properly.
But for Ctrl-Up Emacs say:
<select> is undefined
I can't reproduce this. If it still happens after you update your Cygwin
installation (see below), please give a step-by-step recipe for reproducing
Looks like Oleksandr meant Shift- rather than Ctrl-, because I do get
the "<select> is undefined" message with Shift-Up. Same thing happens
in xterm, so I don't know what's up with that.
OK, I can reproduce that too. On the other hand, emacs running under
X11 does recognize Shift-Up.
Also I have trouble with<C-backspace>. Emacs think that
I think this is a mintty issue. I'll let Andy comment.
Unfortunately terminals don't have a standard keycode for
Ctrl+Backspace, hence in emacs it won't do what's expected in any of
them. In rxvt, it sends the same as plain Backspace. In xterm, it
sends ^H, which will invoke the help. In mintty, it sends ^_ (i.e.
0x1F), which will indeed invoke Undo.
Again, emacs running under X11 recognizes the Ctrl-backspace keypress.
I guess the bottom line is that emacs runs best under X11.
