Re: bash/cmd CTRL-C problem...

(I just returned from vacation so excuse me for responding to an old
message but I really feel compelled to respond to this one...)


This reply puzzles me. What is the point of cygwin if not to support
interoperability between win32 and unix environments? If all I wanted
was an all-unix environment on a 386 box, I'd run linux not cygwin. To
me, the great advantage of cygwin over linux is that I can (mostly) mix
and match Unix and Win32 apps (win32 Java under cygwin bash being the
notable exception :-)
