- Reply-to: bkeener at thesoftwaresource dot com
I had my cygwin.bat file set so that the CYGWIN Environment Variable was set to
title (I think I'm a minority but I liked seeing the program currently being
executed), but yet I suddenly noticed that I was no longer seeing the name of
the program being executed in the title bar.
I recently moved to Win2000, I also recently started using the start command in
cygwin.bat and wondered if either of these caused it to stop working. Then I
went and checked the mailing list archive and found a thread that seemed to
deal with the proposal or thought to remove the cygwin=title function. Now I
wondered if the function was removed and I missed the notice (it is by the way
still in the users guide for the Cygwin variable) or has something else stopped
working or is it a Win2000 problem.
I actually do see the program name but only once while login is being executed
and then the only thing I see is the current working directory after that.
I use the following line to invoke cygwin from within the cygwin.bat file:
start rxvt -tn cygwin -fg white -bg black -sl 300 -sr -fn Courier-12 -e login
