Wow! I had a minor problems because there some executables
in my path with the same names as some Windows built-ins (e.g.,
dir.exe, mkdir.exe, rmdir.exe). After running rehashx, IPython was
running them, rather than the built-in. I was unaware of their
presence until this time; I deleted them, and life is good again.
Great update! I'll keep you posted if I see any strangenesses.
It's really cool to be able to run 'jar', to access zip files, without
needing two windows open (an IPython and a command prompt).
What do you mean about builtin piping? I ask, because "ls /s | more"
works just fine. And if I re-aliasing ls to ls.exe, "ls -R | less" works
just fine as well.
