Re: [isabelle] Running cygwin isabelle from windows Gnu Emacs

one possible solution: use cygwin path convention for ISABINWINDWOS,
e.g. /cygdrive/c/Cyhwin/usr/local/Isabelle2007/bin

This indeed sounds very strange since Isabelle only relies on bash, not
tcsh.  Have you tried Cygwin/XEmacs?  E.g by "isabelle-interface -p
xemacs"?  Cygwin/XEmacs is known to work with Isabelle/PG reasonably
whereas there are no experience reports for Cygwin/GNUEmacs

Hope this helps
