Integrating Cygwin with CloudBees Accelerator (Windows Only)

This chapter provide information about how CloudBees Accelerator integrates with Cygwin.

Cygwin is a Linux-like environment for Windows that consists of two parts:

  • A DLL ( cygwin1.dll ) that acts as a Linux API emulation layer, providing substantial Linux API functionality.

  • A collection of tools that provide a Linux look and feel.

If your builds used gmake in a Cygwin environment, you might need to use eMake’s --emake-emulation=cygwin option.

For more information about other Cygwin-specific eMake command-line options and corresponding environment variables, see " Windows-specific Commands ". Specifically, the following command-line options:

--emake-cygwin=<Y|N|A>

and

--emake-ignore-cygwin-mounts=<mounts>
