Some time ago I obtained a Mac-Mini. Up until now I have rarely used it. Last week, however, I also upgraded my PC, and have now been brought kicking and screaming into the 21st centuy – it has WinXP on it!!!
Rather than leaving the Mac gathering dust, and considering how little I actually use cygwin for, I thought it about time I learnt to use Darwin.
So far I have found no Home directory, though I believe this is the Users/username directory. The .bashrc file doesn’t seem to work but I think the .profile is working. However on Cygwin the commands are slightly different:
alias ls=' ls --color' on Cygwin becomes
alias ls="ls -G" in Darwin.
I still have to see if I can make to work, and then move onto CVS. To complicate matters I also need to use SSH… hopefully I can transfer my cygwin created key for this.
It will be a painfully slow exercise.
