Should be an easy question. I have a windows version python 2.7 at
C:/Python27/python.exe and I also have cygwin's installation at
/usr/bin/python -> /usr/bin/python2.7.exe. This means that when I install a library/module using a windows installer, I don't have it in cygwin and vice versa. My solution was to create a symlink,
/usr/bin/python -> /cygdrive/c/Python27/python.exe and then
alias python="python -i" so that I get an interactive terminal in cygwin.
However, I found a number of other people throughout the internet who had similar problems, and no one recommended this solution. Am I missing something? Is this a bad idea? Thanks.
