cygwin is a port of unix programs and utilities to Windows. Will not work on a linux installation.

i wanted to know if xemacs (or even the older emacs )can run in cygwin from the command line(just like vi),coz i dont like vi's interface ,but i'd still like to use an editor that runs in the command line rather tan a gui based editor.
plz reply.

I don't think of cygwin as Linux, hence the move to General ...

That said: *IF* you installed it it should be in your path and should
run ...



bash, command, cygwin, line, running, xemacs
