Cool! That's just what I need! Thanks, Jon.
When I type "cyg" and Tab, many executables starting with "cyg" are listed
(Display all 262 possibilities? (y or n) y). I find that many of them are
*.dll libraries under /usr/bin/. This is inconvenient to find the real
executable applications (*.exe).
'export EXECIGNORE=*.dll' is a cygwin extension to bash to tell it you don't
want to see those pesky dlls.
