I have now tried some of this myself on Cygwin. When I try this it doesn't actually hang, but it decides (jnr-posix decides) that the terminal is not interactive. You therefore get no sign-on or prompt. There is also no local echo at the terminal. But if I type 6*7, blindly, it answers 42.

As it is not interactive, it chooses a PlainConsole, which means just use Java i/o. No options exist to force Jython to believe it is interactive. If I launch Jython directly as a java command line, I can get it to echo by placing stty echo in front.

$ stty echo; java -cp build\\exposed\;build\\classes\;extlibs\\* -Dpython.home=dist org.python.util.jython

I'm not sure this command is fully functional, and it's in the development environment, not running the JAR, so you won't be able to copy it directly. What *I* see is already reported as http://bugs.jython.org/issue1669. If that's what you see, then it may help that I've bumped it with a new comment.

Sorry. I tried hacking the jython script with different -DConsole settings in the command like (jline, readline). they all hung.

A quick search suggests some difficulty exists between JLine and Cygwin,

to make do with the PlainConsole
Left to itself, I expect JLine will choose a jline.WindowsTerminal. Does
that not work?
Thanks Jeff, but I don't know what I should do. Is there a way of telling jython from cygwin to do something different with JLine?
