A process spawned by a Cygwin process will be displayed e.g. (the $ is
the bash prompt)

$ which regedit
/c/winnt/regedit

$ regedit &
[1] 1880

$ ps -a
      PID    PPID    PGID     WINPID  TTY  UID    STIME COMMAND
     1508       1    1508       1508    ?   18   Apr 24 /usr/bin/cygrunsrv
     1664    1508    1508       1772    ?   18   Apr 24 /usr/sbin/cron
      864       1     864        864    0 1000 04:58:43 /gnu/local/bin/ispell
     1592       1    1592       1592    1 1000 06:05:55 /usr/bin/bash
     1880    1592    1880       1880    1 1000 06:41:16 /c/winnt/regedit
     1760    1592    1760       1524    1 1000 06:41:23 /usr/bin/ps


In this example the parent process (PPID) of the Windows registry
editor (regedit) is the bash shell.
