comment cygwin1.dll not available error when installing Cygwin
Same for me. I also lost a lot of time yesterday on this, since all other Q/A suggest that it is just a path issue. But I can confirm: By default the installer did not install a cygwin1.dll anywhere. So thanks a lot for sharing, your answer solved the problem for me as well.

comment How can I rename/move a file by simply “editing” its path in a shell?
See my comment to @baochan's answer. This is all good as long as it does not take a lot of TAB's to complete the name (non-uniqueness or subdirectories). My question was how to avoid repeating the name at all.

Some very good ideas indeed.

Yes, that is what I was doing so far as well. My main problem with this is that it is really inconvenient if you have to access a file in TAB some TAB subdirectory twice. I sometimes solved it by highlighting the first name and using the middle-mouse-button-paste for the second. I simply don't like doing things twice :).

Doesn't seem to work with zsh (not a bash user), but still nice to have a bash solution!

comment In bash, how can I rename a file without repeating the path?
Significant drawback: You cannot use tab-completion for old_filename.txt.

+1 for a good solution on Windows/Mac (?); -1 for not briefing the Unix/Linux community that there isn't a native version.

comment Iperf tests in reverse direction
I just made a similar observation: In a similar setup, iperf -c ... is much faster for me compared to iperf -r -c .... I have no explanation for this behavior either.
