Maybe if you run your apps inside a real shell?  Bash and Ksh and probably
others are all available as MSWxx ports.  Kinda extreme I guess (you take
a hit on your HD space, and are working in a new environment) but you also
get lots o really cool extra functionality, to boot. <g>


Einstein himself said that God doesn't roll dice. But he was wrong. And
in fact, anyone who has played role-playing games knows that God
probably had to roll quite a few dice to come up with a character like
Einstein.  -- Larry Wall                                     C. Abney
