Dear gap-forum,

Is there a substitute for the Dos Window? The copy and paste functions are
awful and it has no scroll buffer. The lack of a decent buffer makes it
hard to review what you've just completed. I can't look at the log file
because Windows won't let me access the file erg.log while GAP is running.

Yes, there is a substitute for the DOS Window - Dmitrii Pasechnik suggested
to use the rxvt shell contained in this archive :


(The cygwin1.dll included there seems to be the same as the one distributed
with one of the last bugfixes, so is probably not necessary).

He further states :
"for an unknown reason wingap.bat doesn't like to be in the same directory
as rxvt.exe, at least on one of computers I tried it."

Hope this helps,
