Re: Zsh 4.0.4 and Emacs 21.1 in Windows XP

In November, the following exchange occurred:

Andrej Borsenkow replied:

Have you compiled Emacs under Cygwin? (I assume, you have Cygwin
environment as zsh definitely does not work under native Win32). I
vaguely remember there were problems (Xemacs is supposed to work

Then after that I submitted a patch which would strip CRs off the end of input lines, so it would work for me. Well, I finally got enough time to track it down. It had nothing to do with cygwin bin mode, and nothing really to do with zsh. (I could make it happen with other shells too.) And my bogus patch is unnecessary.

It turns out it was caused by the expression (standard-display-european) in my .emacs file; once I removed that and just used (set-explicit-shell-file-name "/path/to/zsh.exe") I was fine. I am SO HAPPY now -- my beloved zsh, in emacs, on Windows and Irix and Linux, all working beautifully!

I know this is a little off topic, but I just wanted to get it into the archives in case anyone else had this problem.
