Re: Windows home path
When I start cygwin from the installed cygwin batch file, it uses
C:\Documents and Settings\username (where username is my current logged in
windows username) as my home directory. As I stated before, I can change it
by modifying the HOME env var in the batch file, but this doesn't seem like
a good long term solution.
