How do I fix the q command prompt under cygwin, using mintty?
I find that when launching q from cygwin underneath mintty, the console generally seems to work, however the q) prompt is not displayed. I am just met with a blank line. I have the latest cygwin, and the latest mintty terminal. Note that when I launch cygwin using cmd, the q) prompt is there. Just not under mintty. So I have a viable, but not ideal workaround. Various aspects of mintty are coded deep into my muscle memory. mintty's wikipedia entry states: Since [mintty] is not based on the standard Windows console, however, programs written specifically for that do not work correctly in mintty So I suspect that is the cause here. But was wondering if anyone has been able to get kdb/q to work in this setup. In summary, can the q interpreter be made to fully work under mintty?
