Hi,tony, thanks for timely and insightful reply. Unfortunately, I'm new to 
cygwin (linux) and not quite sure what step should I take to make the the 
job done. For example, where can I find the julia package path, and to 
which I add these path in cygwin, with which command ("export" as I 
guess?). For the git issue, I think I first need to uninstall the git 
package in cygwin and then call git outside, is that true? Thank you for 
your help.
