I am trying to compile some SAT solvers, which all come as Unix source-code bundles. I have installed Cygwin at c:\cygwin, and added c:\cygwin\bin to my Windows path.
Unforturnately, that's already the point at which you strayed from the
optimum path. Cygwin provides, to the best of everyone's ability, an
entire Unix _environment_. And that means you'll usually have to enter
that environment, not just pick things out of it from the outside.
In other words: no, the Cygwin bin directory should not usually be in
your Windows PATH. It can be done that way with sufficient insight into
the consequences, but you should stay away from that can of worms for now.
Lingeling came with the following instructions:
configure && make
Once I realised this translates to...
sh configure.sh && make
Actually, no such translation would have been necessary. The general
idea is that you would be doing this from inside the Cygwin console
environment (i.e. click on that icon the installer created), and then
such original Unix command lines will actually just work, without your
needing to translate anything.
