Cygwin Setup

The instructor has found useful the following modifications to the default Cygwin operating environment:

Create the file .bashrc in your home directory with the following contents:

# This places the current directory in the path for executable files.
PATH=$PATH:.

# Some handy aliases
alias more=less
alias ll='ls -l'

# Export the additional environment variables
export PATH
Also make the following link to make these changes apply to your login shell:
ln -sf .bashrc .bash_login
