I don't know if anyone has noticed, but it appears that when CTRL-C is pressed in Nano it is not recognized under Cygwin. Is this normal behavior under Windows, is the CTRL-C somehow intercepted and stripped out? I am using WinXP.

As mentioned in the cygwin archives - the CYGWIN enviornment variable needs to be set to include tty for ctrl-C to work (and some other things) - See the cygwin users guide for details on the CYGWIN environment variable. The tty option needs to be set Before you start cygwin.

Perfect, just added "CYGWIN=tty" to the environment variables and all is fine. Thanks.

Maybe a dumb question. Why does Cygwin not automatically update environment variables as part of the installation? Or at least ask if they should be updated?
