After much farking around with startxwin.bat, rebaseall, wmiirc (the ruby version), and the ruby configuration file, I’ve finally managed to get wmii up and running on cygwin.

Pure wmii doesn’t really work on Cygwin. It seems like there is some buffering on file sockets which means e.g. that Mod-p won’t kick in until I’ve switched buffers a few times. So I decided to go for ruby-wmii, which is nicely scriptable in Ruby, and has a faster implementation of IXP (which I’m not quite sure what is, but has something to with filesockets).

I’m really looking forward to trying this out in a serious way.
