Re: [ITP] chere
Recent traffic in the main mailing list indicated a package to manage Cygwin
Prompt Here functionality would be appreciated.
I propose contributing (and maintaining) a shell script to do this. See the
attached script for my initial version. It works as advertised on my W2K box,
installing and uninstalling a Bash/Rxvt context menu.
Cannot you think of a better name than "chere"?
I would favor "CygwinPromptHere".
If so +1 and GTG from me.
Note: This is for dummies. "chere" looks a package for experienced users.
It needs some work, and input from term/shell maintainers on appropriate startup
incantations. I'd welcome any comments and feedback.
/bin/chere Error: Unknown terminal
cmd rxvt xterm
well, maybe add some notes for the required -t and -s switches,
or add -h hint
Is this going in the right direction? Has someone got a more appropriate
solution in the wings (I'm aware of Gerrits and a few other implementations)? Am
I wasting my time?
This is the best I saw so far. :)
Even an uninstaller!
