MIDAS on Cygwin
If you want to run MIDAS on Cygwin, make sure you have cygserver running. First set a Windows system environment variable CYGWIN=server. This is best done through the Control Panel -> System -> Advanced -> Environment Variables. Then run /usr/bin/cygserver-config in a Cygwin console window. Then reboot. After that your MIDAS executables should run properly.
If cygserver is not running, one (obvious) symptom is that odbedit fails immediately with a "Bad system call" error.
I've only tested this so far with odbedit and an offline analyzer that generates histograms in the same structure . Both of those work properly.
