I have X running. How can I start Cygwin's build of Gvim from Windows,
without doing from an xterm? I tried issuing gvim from a cmd window but
I receive an error "cygice-6.dll was not found".
I don't use X. I just use RXVT windows on top of the Windows Desktop.
I don't use Cygwin's version of Gvim. I use the Windows version. To
use Gvim from Cygwin, I have a small script (attached) that converts
Cygwin paths to Windows paths and then launches Gvim. With this setup,
I can use a single version of Gvim from both Windows and Cygwin.
I've tried this in the past. The problem I found was that Windows VIM
required a different vimrc syntax then the Unix VIM. I was hoping to
avoid keeping two copies of my growing and changing vimrc file.
