What gets me right now is cleartool from IBM Rational is written for
Windows and doesn't handle the pty's that Cygwin's rxvt (and rsh, etc.)
use. That and I'm currently working on a Perl script for Clearquest
which requires cqperl - an ActiveState based Perl which also doesn't
But for you I fail to see why you would want to use edit.com! I mean
geezer a .com executable! Ain't that quaint!
And as for python, I would hope that you are writing the sort of Python
code that it relatively portable so you can use Cygwin's Python and if
you must use whatever Python for Windows you have after you're done. If
I didn't need to use cqperl I'd be using Cygwin's Perl...
