Currently the only documentation is in the source.

Cygwin will scan the registry for CYGWIN environment variable options
for a specific program.  You have to create a new key:

    HKCU\Software\Cygnus Solutions\Cygwin\Program Options
    HKLM\Software\Cygnus Solutions\Cygwin\Program Options

Each string name under this category is either the word "default" or is
the full Windows path (including drive) of a program.  The string value
is a CYGWIN environment variable option string like "binmode or

So, if you have inetd installed in /usr/sbin and your root is c:\cygwin,
you'd set up a key like this:

	Cygnus Solutions
	    Program Options
		binmode notitle tty

If you substitute the word "default" for the c:\cygwin\usr\sbin\inetd.exe
then this will set the default cygwin setting for any program not specified

There is currently no tool available for setting these options.  You have
to use regedit directly to manipulate them.
