* Better Cygwin Terminal
* How can I copy and paste into Cygwin console windows?
* Setting up RXVT
My cygwin.bat currently looks like this:
start rxvt -sr -sl 10000 -fg white -bg black -fn "Lucida Console-10" -tn cygwin -e /bin/bash --login -i
I still was not really satisfied. The colsole behaved good, but I wanted to have the same comfort putty is giving me.
Fortunately I found the solution:
It is a patched version of putty and adds 'cygwin' as alternative protocol to raw, rlogin, telnet and ssh and is just what I was looking for a long time!
Using it is really simple:
* Download, extract and start puttycyg.exe
* Select the 'cygwin' protocol and enter '-' as hostname
If you want to directly start a terminal window without GUI interaction (as I like it) use the following command:
puttycyg.exe -cygterm -
