  unset RUBYOPT

To Do

These are things that I need to figure out how to accomplish under cygwin.

  • find equivalent to “start .” or “nautilus .”
  • launch gvim from shell. e.g “gvim .”
  • figure out why vmail does not work.
  • kill windows processes e.g. “ps msbuild.exe kill”
  • install inconsolata font
