Cygwin man search problem

If you are a windows user, and you use cygwin, there is a problem with man page. The search function is a bit weird, where it cannot find something like "-D" in ssh man page. To overcome this, you have to set the LANG environment variable to c. To do this, just add export LANG=c to your .bashrc:

$ echo "export LANG=c" >> .bashrc

That's all folks :)
