I have become a fervent console user since I began using the linux shell in my daily workflow.
I want to be able to call
"C:\Program Files\Application\Application.exe" as
application from the command line where the application is any arbitrary application. I know that I can use the
PATH environment variable for this; however, I would prefer not to pollute my environment variable space more than it should be (since I have over 10 applications that I would like to create shortcuts for).
Edit: Should have mentioned earlier that I would also like the shortcuts to be compatible with MinGW as well.
