[erlang-questions] Installing on cygwin

This installation guide suggests that Erlang probably won't work on
cygwin...

http://www.erlang.org/doc/installation_guide/INSTALL-WIN32.html (see 4th
question in faq)


That said, I am happily using cygwin to invoke the native Windows version of
Erlang.  There's a bit of fussing to deal with Windows vs Unix paths, but it
hasn't been a huge deal so far.  (I am also having good luck using the
native Windows version of Emacs instead of cygwin emacs.)

Dan.
