Is it possible to change the current Cygwin window's icon from command line?
I used to ssh to multiple servers from cygwin tabs within ConEmu.
Changing icon will be greatly helpful to make sure which machine I am on at
the first glance at the tabs.
As far as I know, you can only specify an icon before startup in a Windows
shortcut, or on a mintty command line.
A window icon may be changeable after a window is created some Windows utility
which provides that specific function.
I usually indicate remote login by changing background colour.
However, changing also the icon on-the-fly for this purpose is an interesting use case. I'm considering whether to add such a feature. Note, however, that it's not likely to work if mintty is embedded in ConEmu. Also, there is a design issue to solve: As absolute pathnames may not be too useful when addressed remotely, maybe another resource class should be added (in addition to themes, sounds, lang/localization). What do others think?
