comment Git keeps forgetting the current directory
Is hello.pl a new file? If I'm not mistaken -a only adds existing files to be committed. What is the output of git status after editing file?

comment gVim as git editor under cygwin
I installed msysgit and used git bash for a long time. I don't remember exactly why I started using cygwin, but what I did (do) is I add the path to Git (/cygdrive/c/Program Files (x86)/Git/bin) to my cygwin $PATH.

comment gVim as git editor under cygwin
@Heptite I tried to create a bat file for it too. No luck. I get the cannot spawn error mentioned in my question. And you're right about the conflicts. I have not had conflicts with gvim but with git. git config --global under cygwin saves to cygwin home, same under msysgit saves to windows home.

comment gVim as git editor under cygwin
Unfortunately not. /cygdrive/c/Program\ Files\ (x86)/Vim/vim73/gvim.exe: /cygdrive/c/Program Files (x86)/Vim/vim73/gvim.exe: No such file or directory error: cannot run /cygdrive/c/Program\ Files\ (x86)/Vim/vim73/gvim.exe: No such file or directory error: There was a problem with the editor '/cygdrive/c/Program\ Files\ (x86)/Vim/vim73/gvim.exe'. The path is correct though, /cygdrive/c/Program\ Files\ (x86)/Vim/vim73/gvim.exe

comment gVim as git editor under cygwin
which gvim outputs /usr/local/bin/gvim, only when the soft link or the script is there. I should probably state clearer my reason for wanting gVim. I use it daily and have set it up as I want it. If I use any other I will have two editors settings to maintain.
