I use mintty and Console. One good thing about Console it understands
pty's or does something in the face of pty's that cause it to work in

mintty (or when mintty has ssh'ed to a remote system - sorry not on my
work XP machine to test...) when I type cleartool I get no prompt. This
is a long standing issue with cleartool on Windows using standard
"console output" and that not working with ptys. Console, however,
works. IIRC I think I saw it running a child cmd process. So maybe it
runs things in there and grabs output to be displayed or read from.
I have just installed Cygwin 1.17.14-2 using the setup.exe.Yes. Just use mintty. It's the default and it works.
I use Console (portable; from Portableapp.Com) as my entry to bash.
I have tried this when calling cygwin.bat from Explorer, effectively
starting cygwin from cmd.exe, and then the "~" works as expected.
Does anyone have a solution for this ?
I wish mintty could be made to do that...
