Running XPPAUT in the bash shell
- When you install the bash shell, you will have to create a
directory for the cygnus tools. Copy xppaut.exe and the libX11.dll
into the directory where the binaries are stored.
At this point, you should be able to look under the start menu and
select "Cygwin B20". This will pop up a bash shell with all special
environment variables set up for you. If you are running Windows 95 or
98 and are faced with the error message "Out of environment space", you
need to increase the amount of environment space in your config.sys and
try again. Adding the line
shell=C:\command.com /e:4096 /p
should do the trick if
C: is your system drive letter.
- Once you have the bash shell up, then type
DISPLAY=your.pc.name:0.0 just like in the DOS shell.
You should be able to run XPP now and AUTO as well
