Emacs and CygWin

 

Don’t forget to look at the menu-bar, there are customizations for Cygwin available... like the Cygwin shell

;; cygwin

;; NOTE: PATH-concat REVERSED from source material
;; so that native (Perl) executes first
(setenv "PATH" (concat (getenv "PATH") "c:/bin;"))
(setq exec-path (cons "c:/bin/" exec-path))
(require 'cygwin-mount)
(cygwin-mount-activate)

(add-hook 'shell-mode-hook 'n-shell-mode-hook)
(defun n-shell-mode-hook ()
  "12Jan2002 - sailor, shell mode customizations."
  (local-set-key '[up] 'comint-previous-input)
  (local-set-key '[down] 'comint-next-input)
  (local-set-key '[(shift tab)] 'comint-next-matching-input-from-input)
  (setq comint-input-sender 'n-shell-simple-send)
  )

;; designed for Cygwin (see "man"), but clear works just fine normally.
(defun n-shell-simple-send (proc command)
  "17Jan02 - sailor. Various commands pre-processing before sending to shell."
  (cond
   ;; Checking for clear command and execute it.
   ((string-match "^[ \t]*clear[ \t]*$" command)
    (comint-send-string proc "\n")
    (erase-buffer)
    )
   ;; Checking for man command and execute it.
   ((string-match "^[ \t]*man[ \t]*" command)
    (comint-send-string proc "\n")
    (setq command (replace-regexp-in-string "^[ \t]*man[ \t]*" "" command))
    (setq command (replace-regexp-in-string "[ \t]+$" "" command))
    ;;(message (format "command %s command" command))
    (funcall 'man command)
    )
   ;; Send other commands to the default handler.
   (t (comint-simple-send proc command))
   )
  )

 

 

NOTE: the execution problem wasn’t from within a Cygwin shell -- it was the _normal_ shell; since the path has the cygwin bin first, the W32 shell would ignore native Perl, and run that, first. ouch.
