Using msysgit in cygwin

07 Oct 2011

There are some pitfalls. One for instance is that it starts the editor wrong when running msysgit in the cygwin shell. Naturally I tried specifying different paths and ended up with the following configuration of gitconfig:

  editor = “"/c/Program Files (x86)/Vim/vim73/gvim.exe"”

<div style="clear: both;"></div>
