I found it with a Google search, then saw Mark Harig had already done
the work :) ...
... where it says:
(no)tty - if set, Cygwin enables extra support (i.e.,
termios) for UNIX-like ttys. It is not compatible with some
Windows programs. Defaults to not set, in which case the tty
is opened in text mode with ^Z as EOF. Note that this has
been changed such that ^D works as expected instead of ^Z,
and is settable via stty. This option must be specified
before starting a Cygwin shell and it cannot be changed in
Hmm, I wonder what win progs don't work. It's somewhat of a drag that
it can't be changed in the shell, otherwise one could just create a
function in the .bashrc to export tty then call emacs.
(I also notice that codepage:* is not mentioned on that page, yet it
seems to be needed IIRC for rxvt. Any reason *not* to have the standard
distribution put 'set CYGWIN=codepage:oem' in cygwin.bat?)
