Newbie question


Hi all,
I have been playing with CYGWIN for the last few weeks' now on my WINXP system. Often when I'm in the BASH window, I'll enter a command, like "INFO'and it returns ALOT of stuff. But, when I try to escape out of the command, I don't know the procedure to quit the command I'm in, short of closing the BASH window. I know it's got to be something pretty simple.
Thx all,

Never used it before, but try using Control + C

You can use 'q' to quit info (and man, for that matter).

Edit: also, in future, please use thread titles that are descriptive of your question/problem.

to add to Nylex, info and the command man are sort of a new shell. Space bar, arrow keys,tab and other keys function to move you through the data. Normally q is the way to end. It may be while in one of these you can't see the end of the page as such too.

I have played with mobaterm and it seems a bit better but don't change horses in midstream.
