I'm heavily using Cygwin (with PuTTY shell). But, it's quite tricky to invoke
cl.exe (that is, the Visual C++ compiler toolchain) in the Cygwin Bash shell. Running
vcvars*.bat in the Bash shell doesn't work obviously. I tried to migrate VC++'s environment variables to Cygwin, but it's not that easy.
How do I run the VC++ compiler in Cygwin's Bash shell?
