When I tried to ask the developer of the program how to remove the program he indicated
that the problem was not with fontforge, but with Cygwin, so that is why I came to this
user group to find out how to fix the problem. If on the other hand all I have to do is
just manually remove the program, I did not know that was possible because I was under
the assumption that since I used cygwin to install the program I would need (cygwin) to
uninstall the program. Do I just go to the directory that it is located in and delete
the file and that is it. Or is there more that I would need to do?
